Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

What makes this a great sausage gravy recipe has to be the simplicity. It’s so quick and easy to make and uses few ingredients without sacrificing that creamy, salty flavor we know and love. Sausage gravy is a staple in the south but people make it anywhere. You can serve biscuits and gravy for any meal! I especially love it as a hearty and filling side for breakfast. It’s perfect on a cold winter morning.

Even though it is typically made as a side for breakfast, my kids love eating it for dinner. It’s warming and comforting after a long day at school. We have biscuits and sausage gravy a couple of times a month!

How to Make Homemade Sausage Gravy

Here are the step-by-step directions for the best and easiest homemade sausage gravy.

  1. Prepare Your Biscuits. Preheat your oven and bake your refrigerated biscuits according to the package directions. This will ensure they are hot and ready at the same time as your sausage gravy.
  2. Cook the Sausage. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and brown the ground sausage. 
  3. Add the flour. Once browned and cooked through, turn the heat to low and slowly add the flour. You’ll want to stir constantly. Cook together for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Finish with milk. Raise the heat to medium and while stirring, slowly pour in the milk. It will thicken as it combines.
  5. Season. Add in your pepper, salt, and seasoned salt.
  6. Enjoy. Serve over hot biscuits.

What to Serve With Sausage Gravy

Are you wondering how else to enjoy this yummy gravy? Here are some ideas to get you started!

  • Biscuits and Gravy. This has been a southern favorite for many years and in my opinion the best way to serve this gravy recipe.
  • Steak. One of the classic ways to eat biscuits and sausage gravy is to enjoy it as a side to steak. Traditionally you would have chicken fried steak, but a classic Pan Seared Steak takes less time and is just as delicious.
  • Brunch. The greatest thing about brunch is that there are no rules! You can include classic breakfast options like an Easy Overnight French Toast Casserole or Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches which tie in lunch!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

Any gravy leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3-5 days. I do not recommend freezing because it alters the flavor and texture of the gravy.

To reheat, you can microwave if you wish. Make sure you are using a microwave-safe container and cover it to prevent splatter. However, it is much better reheated on the stovetop in a saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally until heated through and enjoy.
