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

3/4 cup flour

5 cups milk

Whole sausage, cooked and drained

Pinch of sage

A lot of salt and pepper

1 tbs oil/bacon grease if needed

All everything 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. 

Chocolate Gravy

 
2 large (heaping) tbs of cocoa

1 cup sugar

3 tbs flour

2 cups milk, plus more if you want thinner gravy

1 tsp vanilla

3 tbs butter

Mix the dry ingredients with a whisk in a pot. Then add the wet ingredients. Stir well and bring to a slight boil on medium heat until you reach the thickness you want. Stir constantly so it doesn’t stick. Add more milk if it gets too thick. Serve over warm biscuits.

McDonald’s Big Mac Sauce

  

This is a copycat recipe of the big mac sauce from McDonald’s. Trust me, it is pretty spot on! Goes great on hamburgers or a dip for fries!

1 cup miracle whip dressing

1/3 cup sweet relish (must use sweet)

1/4 french dressing (no substitutions)

1 tbs sugar

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp minced dry onion

Mix it all together, put in fridge and let it sit for hours. Best to make it the day before so the onions have time to re hydrate and the flavors all marry.

Also I wanted to include the directions on putting together a big mac.

Country Gravy!

(Pictures coming soon!)

Homemade Country Gravy

Remember this! 4,4,2

4 tablespoon oil

4 tablespoons all purpose flour

2 cups whole milk

Then: Add salt and pepper

Remember: let the flour and oil cook for 1-2 minutes so the flour will combine and not taste like straight flour. This will become a roux. Then add the milk and whisk to keep the lumps out. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly with the whisk until desired thickness. It will boil a bit to thicken. This is a white gravy. Can also be used as a sausage gravy, just add cooked sausage near the end.
