It's not breakfast at our house unless sausage gravy is on the table.

Cuisine: American
Keyword: Sausage Gravy


  • 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.
