Biscuits and Gravy: Foodie Friday at Kansas Women Bloggers

Sausage Gravy

This is the easiest sausage gravy recipe I’ve ever come across, and it’s also the most delicious.

1 lb. pork sausage
1/4 cup of flour
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the sausage on medium heat in a skillet. When it’s evenly brown, pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the grease. (Just eyeball it. Some brands of sausage produce less grease than others, so you may be able to skip this step.) Add the flour and stir until dissolved. Then add the milk, a little at a time, stirring continuously, until thickened.

Biscuits

Biscuits are something of a personal preference — everyone seems to have a different idea of the perfect biscuits. However, I used this recipe, and they turned out so fluffy and delicious I decided to link to it rather than give you the one I usually use.

I used all-purpose flour and added the extra 1/3 cup of liquid she suggests. I also made my own buttermilk by stirring two teaspoons of vinegar and a pinch of baking soda into a 3/4 cup of regular milk.

Both the biscuits and the sausage gravy can be made ahead and reheated, so you don’t have to get up at 5 a.m. to make them!
