Southern Sausage Gravy

So yes I’m from the south, and no I can’t make good homemade biscuits. So I’m not even gonna lie and try to include a recipe for biscuits. But here is my sausage gravy recipe I’ve been working on for a long time. I think I have it right now!

Sausage gravy (2 ways)

3/4 cup flour

5 cups milk

Whole sausage, cooked and drained (keep the grease)

Pinch of sage

A lot of salt and pepper

1+ tbs bacon grease if needed

Add everything (including the oil from the sausage) except the sausage to a pan and stir constantly until thick and creamy. Make sure you cook low and slow so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. When it’s almost done, add the sausage. 

You can also make a rue. Use the sausage grease and mix in the flour and stir until creamy. Add more oil (bacon grease) if needed to, to make it come together. Then slowly add in milk about 1/2 cup at a time and stir with a rue paddle until it’s completely incorporated. Then keep adding and stirring slowly until all the milk is in. This makes for a super creamy gravy.
