Tempting Tuesdays ~ Homemade Sausage Gravy

After a month of sweetness, I decided to switch gears and give you some of my favorite breakfast items. An example of tasty, down home, country cooking is Homemade Sausage Gravy served over fresh buttermilk biscuits. I've made this recipe a combination of ways over the years, but the closest I've gotten to duplicating an old family recipe is one I found on Wifessionals.


16 oz roll sausage
4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups milk
1 tsp ground sage
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Serve over 6-8 buttermilk biscuits

Brown sausage in skillet over medium heat. Once cooked, drain off excess grease by placing sausage on a paper towel lined plate.

Melt butter in skillet then return sausage to skillet and coat with butter. Add flour and mix well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Pour in milk and stir for about a minute. Add sage, onion powder, pepper, and salt then bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and let the gravy thicken for 5 to 10 minutes. The bubbling will help the gravy to thicken.

Transfer gravy to glass container and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, warm gravy over low heat on stove. Add milk to thin gravy if necessary. Add another pinch or two of salt to taste and serve over buttermilk biscuits.
