Sausage Gravy and Biscuits - For Supper

Ever have one of those days where by the end of the day you are so tired you just want some comfort food? Well, I had one yesterday and decided we would have biscuits and gravy for supper.



Brown sausage in a large pan. We like the hot breakfast sausage. To make gravy, you need one tablespoon of fat and one tablespoon of flour for every half cup of milk that you plan to use, don't be afraid to add some butter if there isn't enough grease from the sausage. This ratio makes for a nice, thick gravy! :) I used half a pound of sausage, 4 tablespoons drippings/butter, 4 tablespoons flour and 2 cups of milk.





Add flour all at once.












Cook and stir for a couple of minutes to brown the flour and so that the gravy doesn't taste like flour.







Add the milk all at once.











Cook, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Season with salt and pepper if needed.









I served this over some Buttermilk Biscuits made with my Baking Mix and added some scrambled eggs on the side. I felt much better after dinner! :)

We all gotta take a comfort food break once in a while! A little cafe I went to once served sweet potato biscuits, with sausage/sage gravy on top. Oh man was that good! And I'm not a gravy kinda girl for breakfast...
