When I was a kid I used to think the only way to get breakfast gravy was from one of those inexpensive gravy packages you add water to. Y'all, stop that. Making your own sausage gravy with flour and milk is just as easy! 😉

First off, there are multiple ways to make sausage gravy. I make mine a few different ways. It really just depends on the day.

Here we go...


Sausage roll - regular flavor - 16 oz package

1/3 cup Flour

4 tbsp butter (use more if you like)

2.5 to 3 cups Milk (add more if needed or preferred)

Salt & Pepper to taste


1. In a large sauce pan or pot, cook sausage over medium heat. Crumble the sausage stirring frequently until meat is no longer pink and fully heated.

2. Remove sausage, strain and set aside.

3. Add 4 tbsp butter to pot. Once melted, gradually add flour and combine to paste looking substance. Cook about one minute.

4. Gradually add milk, mix, salt and pepper to taste.

5. Add sausage back to the pot. Combine, reduce heat and simmer on low, stirring occasionally until gravy thickens to liking (5 - 10 minutes-ish). If you need more milk, added it now. Turn off heat and let gravy sit for 2-3 minutes before serving. Mix and pour gravy over fresh biscuits...done!

I use(d) store bought biscuits most of the time. If you have the time to go the homemade route, do it.

Optional Alternatives:

Hot sausage or a combo of regular and hot sausage

Pinch of cajun seasoning - I like Slap Ya Mama

Pinch of thyme

Nonfat or whole milk - I use nonfat. It takes a little longer to thicken but it works just fine.

Hope this helps. Enjoy!
