How To Make Sausage Gravy With Biscuits For Breakfast

Over the weekend, two of my sons requested this breakfast favorite. Here is how to make sausage gravy with biscuits for breakfast.

Quick Biscuit Recipe

I have several great biscuits recipes. In a pinch, the Bisquick Biscuit recipe works. I just follow the direction on the box for the drop biscuits. I sprinkle Bisquick mix on the counter and over my dough to roll it out to 1/2 inch in thickness. You make them thicker. It is all a personal preference.

Biscuit Dough

My Hearth and Hand biscuit cutters came in handy. The large one works great to ne to cut out each biscuit.

Now for the delicious Sausage Gravy. This recipe is how I was taught by my grandmother Baxter. I made a few changes to the recipe.

How To Make Sausage Gravy

Instructions

While the sausage is cooking it is good to make sure to break into smaller pieces. Next, add two tablespoons of all-purpose flour and mix. You will be browning the flour with the sausage.

Add 2 cups of milk and bring the mixture to a slow boil. You need to stir constantly!

I like to sprinkle approximately a 1/4 teaspoon of Smoked Paprika and add salt to personal taste. You can see in the third photo that the gravy on the slow boil has started to thicken. It’s ready! It will thicken up after you remove it from the heat and let sit a minute.

  1. Yum!!! That’s exactly how I make my gravy!!! I think I’ll make that this morning. Our daughter heads back to college today and that would be delicious to have a warm meal as she loads her car in these frigid temperatures.

    1. I had not made it in a while. My hubby does not like any kind of gravy. When the boys made the request, I was all happy to cook it for them. It was always one of my favorites besides waffles.
