Updated: Mar 9

Sausage Gravy

Sausage gravy is a Southern breakfast dish made with crumbled sausage, flour, milk, and seasoning. Brown the sausage, add flour for a thickening agent, then slowly add milk. Serve over biscuits

Sausage Gravy


  • 1 pound ground sausage

  • 2 Tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1-quart milk

  • 1 Tablespoons chicken base

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large saucepan, break up and cook the sausage in the butter over medium heat.

  2. Little by little, add the flour to the butter and fat from the cooked sausage, and make a roux. The amount of flour depends on the amount of fat that has been rendered.

  3. Cook and stir the roux until it does not stick to the pan and has a peanut butter consistency

  4. Add the milk and the chicken base, and use a whisk to blend and thicken. Season with salt and pepper

  5. Turn the heat down, and simmer for about 10 minutes

  6. Serve over hot biscuits
