Sausage Gravy

  • 25 mins
  • 6 ingredients


  • 1/2 lb breakfast sausage
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • kosher and black pepper to taste

This gravy is perfect draped over chicken fried steak or fresh biscuits.

  • Cook the sausage in a medium skillet over medium heat, breaking up into small pieces with the back of a spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Set aside on a paper towel to drain.
  • Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add flour, stir until pale yellow, about 2 minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly, reduce heat to medium, continue to whisk until thick, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the drained sausage and red pepper flakes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
