Sausage Gravy over Biscuits

This meal is one of my family's favorites, but I should admit that it's not one of MY favorites. But at 5-to-1, that means we have this at least once a month. Happy family = happy life, right?

Usually this recipe is called "S.O.S" and served over white toast. I decided to fancy it up a bit & serve it over fresh biscuits.

I make the gravy from scratch, but you can buy powdered mixes if you want REALLY fast & easy. Look for mixes called "Country Gravy" to get the same flavors. You can also use pre-made biscuits or a pre-made dough (like Pillsbury) for the biscuits.

Sausage Gravy over Biscuits
Serves 6

12 freshly made biscuits (use your favorite recipe)
8 Tbsp butter or margarine
8 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp pepper
4 cups milk
16 ozs cooked breakfast sausage (not maple flavored)

Start biscuits baking & sausage browning before you start making the gravy.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over low heat.

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt & pepper. When butter is melted, stir in flour/salt/pepper mixture all at once. Cook over low heat, stirring/whisking mixture until smooth & bubbly.

Stir in milk & heat to boiling; stirring/whisking until smooth & thickened.

Pour cooked sausage onto a paper towel-lined plate to soak up excess grease. Dump cooked sausage into finished gravy.

Stir to combine.

Serve sausage gravy over freshly cooked biscuits.

We always pair this with some fruit to balance out the richness of the gravy.
