It’s not considered a true breakfast unless sausage country gravy and biscuits are on the table.

Erma Bombeck had a quote that said, “I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage”.  I think we must have been related!  We Southerners love gravy.  We put it on everything and can’t get enough of it. This sausage gravy is a family favorite!  I usually make gravy and biscuits at least one time a week for breakfast. We even eat gravy left over the next day and reheat.

Make some of my homemade buttermilk biscuits with some good country sausage gravy for breakfast. Gravy can be made with either sausage drippings or bacon drippings.

Country gravy and biscuits with fried eggs makes the best breakfast ever!

3 tablespoons sausage or bacon drippings

3 tablespoons flour

2 1/2 cups milk (can use whole milk, 2 percent or evaporated)

Salt and Pepper

Cook sausage or bacon reserving drippings.  Add drippings to frying pan along with flour and mix well with spoon.  Cook this until well blended and begins to boil in pan.  Add milk all at once and cook until boils.  Boil for about five minutes until reaches thickness desired.  Watch closely because gravy will boil over on stove if you don’t continue stirring.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Can crumble sausage or bacon into gravy if desired. Serve over biscuits.
