What you will need to make our Simple Sausage Gravy {EASY}:

Sausage-  italian to add a little something different or breakfast sausage 

Butter-  turns a bland meal into masterpiece

Milk- base for the gravy

Bisquick– a premixed baking mix sold at the grocery store

Pepper- to add to the taste

How to Make  Sausage Gravy

  • In a large cooking skillet, cook sausage until brown.
  • With a slotted spoon remove the sausage from the skillet. 
  • Do not drain the sausage grease. Add the butter into the pan. 
  • When the butter has melted add the milk to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes. 
  • Slowly add bisquick into gravy, stirring constantly to eliminate lumps.
  • Add pepper to season. 
  • Return sausage to pan and cook for a couple minutes to warm together. 
  • Then spoon over your already prepared biscuits.

CAN I MAKE SAUSAGE GRAVY THE NIGHT BEFORE?

Allow the gravy to cool completely, then, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.  Reheat the gravy on the stove.  It will thicken the longer it is on the heat.  Add a little milk at a time to the consistency you  prefer.

This looks so tasty that I'm pulling some sausage out of the freezer right now so we can do breakfast for dinner tonight. My family is a huge fan of biscuits and gravy but for some reason we rarely ever have it at home. This looks so simple and delicious that I have a feeling we'll be making it often.

This gravy was awesome and you're right, how can we replicate grandma's recipe? What secret do they have that we're not privy to?? Added the bisquick slowly and stirred it constantly as suggested and that worked well and had no lumps. Keeping this recipe for next time!

I made this with vegan sausages that I let cook right down in the pan first and it was so good!
