Sausage Gravy

Becca here with a good basic sausage gravy recipe that is a real treat for breakfast here!  This was one of my favorite breakfast treats growing up too, and I learned the milk & flour trick from our parents.  Although making gravy sounds a bit intimidating sometimes, it's actually quite easy if you know a few basic tricks, and only takes a few minutes to make once you have your sausage cooked.  I use leftovers in my breakfast pizza recipe I'll share soon too.  Enjoy!

Sausage Gravy

1 pound breakfast sausage (I use my Homemade Breakfast Sausage Recipe)
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste (this will depend on the type of sausage you used)

In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook and crumble sausage until it's browned and no longer pink.  If there is enough oil you can pour it off, do so.  You want a bit of oil left in the skillet, but not several tablespoons worth. 

In a small lidded container, combine flour and 1/2 cup of milk.  Shake well until combined.  Stir flour & milk mixture into sausage in skillet, until well combined and beginning to bubble.  While continuing to stir, add remaining 1 1/2 cups of milk.  Cook gravy until it's a nice thick consistency and bubbling.  Taste, and season with salt and pepper as desired.  Enjoy!
