Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

My family loves sausage gravy and biscuits more than most breakfast foods but we eat it for dinner instead of for breakfast. Its a simple meal to make, especially if you use premade biscuits like I do.

To make the gravy you have to start by frying a pound of pork sausage. I use regular old fashioned breakfast sausage. Brown and crumble thoroughly.

Separate the sausage from the grease but don't discard the grease. Leave the grease in the pan and add flour until you get a nice golden colored paste. This is your roux.

Add milk to your Roux and whisk until you have the thickness you want. Don't be afraid to add more milk as needed. Add your cooked sausage and stir in a teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.

Serve your delicious gravy over biscuits. I buy frozen southern style biscuits, but you could always use your own recipe or any other premade biscuits. And there you have it! Another great meal from my kitchen to your table!
