I wanted to make something different for dinner and  knew I wanted to use sausage.  Then, the idea hit me to make sausage gravy and biscuits.  I had never made sausage gravy before and found this simple, yummy recipe online.

The best part about this recipe is that you can have a hearty breakfast  or dinner ready in about 20 minutes.  Bake your biscuits while the sausage is getting thick and delicious and dinner is ready!

Supplies needed: Large skillet, utensil to break up sausage, dry and wet measuring cups, ladle, cookie sheet and oven

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound sausage roll (original flavor of your favorite brand)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 8 biscuits (buy them prepared, use a can of biscuit dough or make your own)

What to do:
  1. Crumble and cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. 
  2. Drain your sausage, if necessary.
  3. Stir in flour until it is completely dissolved. 
  4. Gradually stir in milk. 
  5. Cook gravy until it is thick and bubbly. **Bake biscuits during this time**
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  7. Serve hot over biscuits. 

Makes 4 servings.  Refrigerate leftovers.

THE VERDICT
Everyone in the family really enjoyed this recipe!  Papa Bear was pleasantly surprised to see that I was making it for dinner when he came home.  Love Bug actually ate the gravy off of the biscuits and left most of the biscuits.  Sweet Girl loved it so much that she asked for the leftovers a couple of days later, but Papa Bear had eaten it for breakfast.

I really enjoyed this meal.  It was tasty and easy to pull together last minute.  I usually have sausage and biscuits on hand.  I also like that it was easy clean-up!

Tips
  1. Serve with oranges or apples if you want a crunch with dinner.
  2. Bake the biscuits while your gravy is thickening.  You want to serve the gravy over warm biscuits, so timing is important with this recipe.
  3. I buy sausage when it is on sale and freeze it.  Keep in mind that while you can cook it from frozen for these types of recipes, it will add quite a bit of time onto the prep time and you have to watch it more when it cooks.
  4. You could try a different sausage flavor, but I would stick to the original flavor or maybe use a spicy sausage.
  5. The gravy refrigerates well.  Make up a batch and the family can have a yummy, warm breakfast during the week.
  6. Biscuits usually do not re-heat so well.  Plan accordingly.
  7. This would probably be good on rice, too.
  8. The gravy would be easy to take to a breakfast potluck.  Put it in a crockpot and have some warm biscuits on the side for people to dish their own serving.
