Ingredients

  • 1 pound roll pork breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup of butter bacon fat or vegetable/canola oil
  • 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 3 to 4 cups of milk more or less, as needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt or to taste

Instructions

  1. Brown sausage in a large skillet, breaking up and crumbling the meat as it cooks
  2. Once the meat is fully browned, stir in the butter or bacon fat to the skillet until melted.
  3. Sprinkle the flour on top of the meat and bring the pan up to a medium high heat.
  4. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
  5. Slowly begin whisking in the first two cups of milk until fully incorporated and mixture begins to bubble. This will provide a fairly thick gravy.
  6. Continue whisking in additional milk a little bit at a time, until the gravy reaches the desired consistency.
  7. Grind plenty of pepper directly into the gravy, add salt to taste, mix well.
  8. Serve over hot, split biscuits.
