The Best Biscuits and Gravy, Ever.

The Best Biscuits and Gravy, Ever - Make the gravy in the same pan you cook the sausage!

I love biscuits and gravy. It's by far my most favorite of all breakfast meals. I usually use a packet of dry gravy mix but those days are over. This sausage gravy recipe is so easy and delicious.

Jacob said this was the way his Aunt Donna made gravy. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet her before she past away, but I only hear stories of her amazing recipes and hosting of family gatherings.

Once you make this thick and creamy gravy serve it on top of biscuits with a side of hash-browns.

There is no going back to powder mix or canned gravy for this girl!

The Best Biscuits and Gravy, Ever - Make the gravy in the same pan you cook the sausage!

Sausage Gravy

1 pound Breakfast Sausage (I use Honeysuckle Turkey Breakfast Sausage)
1/3 cup flour
4 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
2 teaspoons black pepper (more/less, depending on your tastes)
8-10 Biscuits (I use the Aldi brand tube of 8 biscuits.)
Serve with a side of hash-browns

Crumble and brown the sausage over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Sprinkle half the flour and stir until the sausage soaks it all up and then add the rest of the flour. This meat will look very dry. Continue to stir and cook for another minute.

Turn up heat to medium-high and pour in the 4 cups of milk. Add in pepper and seasoning salt. Stir consistently until gravy is very thick. (Once the mixture starts to boil it will thicken very quickly.) It will take 10 minutes or so. If the gravy gets too thick, add a little more milk.

Add more seasoning if needed. Serve over warm biscuits with a side of hash-browns.

  1. I have always made my gravy for biscuits and gravy this very way. My son and were talking about it one day and when I told him how I make the gravy his comment was "and that's all there is to it?" He is now the family biscuits and gravy specialist. Glad you could share with everyone. Next you should try to find a good buttermilk biscuit recipe. I had one but I haven't made them in a very long time. Truth is, the biscuits aren't much harder than the gravy. The secret is not to over handle the dough.

  2. This looks so good! I plan on trying it this week. You should try the biscuits from this recipe ~ so good and easy! http://www.thibeaultstable.com/2010/02/buttermilk-biscuits.html

  3. Wow I will never buy another can of gravy again.
    This recipe was amazing

  4. We love biscuits and gravy in this house. It's the one thing since he was a baby my 6 year old will lick his plate and ask for more. Thank you for sharing your gravy recipe. I can never remember the flour to milk ratio. Mine (and everyone who tries them) favorite biscuit recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It has cream of tarter in it. Also, cut in butter, not crisco or other sub-par fat and these biscuits are soooo fluffy, light, and yummy. mmm-mmm

  5. Anything called "The Best Biscuits and Gravy Ever" is my favorite recipe ever! Can't wait to try this.


  6. If you want to make it even creamier & more delicious, substitute half & half for one of the cups of milk. I never measure when I make gravy, so I'm guessing. But, seriously that little boost makes a HUGE difference in the consistency. The 7-up biscuits that made the rounds a while back have proven to be the BEST biscuits to pair with sausage gravy. I have served them to dozens of people & they have all said they were the best Biscuits & Gravy they've ever had.

  7. i always cook my sausage in a tablespoon or so of bacon fat....takes it to a whole new level! definitely not the healthiest but it is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!

  8. Looks so delicious and the easy to make. Can't wait to try this. Do you have any recommendations on how to make the biscuits?

    1. Honestly, I usually keep it super easy and buy a tube of biscuits from the dairy section of the grocery store. I really like the Aldi brand biscuits but go with what you like best.

  9. Do I drain the sausage grease before adding the other ingredients?

    1. No, you do not need to drain the grease. You can proceed with the other ingredients. Enjoy!

  10. Looks delicious. I make sausage gravy like this also. I use bacon to switch up every so often. :)
