Biscuits & Gravy Recipe: Make This Southern Sausage Gravy Recipe for Those Biscuits

Down south, if someone says they want a “big breakfast,” it will most likely include biscuits and gravy. It’s definitely not the healthiest breakfast choice, but occasionally everyone needs a little biscuits and gravy. 

You'll need:

  • 1 pound bulk breakfast sauce (I use Jimmy Dean)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups mik
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Here's how to make it:

  1. Cook the sausage in a large skillet until brown, breaking it up as it cooks. Remove sausage to a bowl and leave the grease in the skillet (you knew that was coming!). 
  2. Add the flour to the grease and whisk to make a roux. Cook about 1-2 minutes. (If your sausage didn't have much grease, add a little oil to the pan to make 2 tablespoons.)
  3. Whisk in milk and cream. Cook until bubbly and thick. Season with lots of black pepper and some salt.
  4. Add sausage back to the skillet and stir to combine. Serve over fresh-baked biscuits. (You can used frozen, canned or try my homemade biscuit recipe!)

Hi Donna,
I made this using Corn Starch instead of flour to convert it to a #GlutenFree gravy.
