This southern comfort food can be made in a variety of different spice levels depending on the type of sausage used. Extra spicy? Use chorizo, like it mild? Use sweet italian, or any in between!
Makes 8 servings
1 lb. ground sausage (I prefer sage flavored)
1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. black pepper
pinch kosher salt
2 cups milk or more
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
country biscuits of your choosing
In large skillet, brown sausage on high heat, breaking up into crumbles. Remove to bowl. In bowl, add flour, salt and pepper. Toss over meat to coat. In skillet, reduce heat to medium and add butter. Once melted, return coated sausage to pan. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly until thick and smooth, about 10 minutes. Undercooking will cause bitter floury taste to gravy, so make sure to cook at least 10 minutes and taste test your gravy!
Serve immediately over biscuits.
