Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day so fill your belly with this easy savory Three Ingredient Sausage Gravy.

I’m a breakfast lover. We make something different every day of the week. Sometimes it’s not until 10:00, but breakfast hits the table eventually. On those rough mornings when I need something quick and easy I go with this three ingredient sausage gravy. I whip up some easy homemade biscuits and while those are in the oven I whip together this sauce.

I do have to say, I was pretty impressed that you could get such a rich strong flavor with only three ingredients. I mean… If you don’t make a huge mess in the kitchen… how on earth can your meal taste any good?? But it does. I think it has something to do with the sausage simmering with the milk. The flavors meld together so well and a little dash of pepper knocks up the spice level.

So are you ready for me to change your breakfast world?

Three Ingredient Sausage Gravy


  • 1/2 lb breakfast sausage
  • 1/4 C. flour
  • 2 C. whole milk
  • pepper to taste


  1. Brown the sausage in a large pan until cooked and crumbled.
  2. Stir the flour directly into the meat until it's fully combined. Whisk in the milk and simmer just until thickened. Sprinkle with pepper and serve over biscuits.

Can you believe how ridiculously easy that was? Bust open your warm biscuits, top with your gravy, and enjoy. The only complaint I’ve gotten over this recipe was when I didn’t crumble the sausage good enough for my picky little sister. But that didn’t stop her from licking her plate!

If you have a large family I really recommend doubling. This leaves us with a tiny leftover, but we are a family of three and don’t really eat much. OR if you aren’t a fan of savory meals to start your day you should try one of my sweet options like…

    Our family has always called this gravy S.O.S…
    Sh*t on Shingles. Gma always said it was a military thing. Any way… its amazing!

      My family calls this S.O.S. as well but the “shingles” can be either bread or fried potatoes. Yumm!! Now I am going to have to make it. I have always made my sausage gravy this way and it’s awesome.

    This is how I always make my sausage gravy. And to me, it’s awesome!! And my boyfriend loves it too!! In fact, I just made some for New Year’s morning breakfast :). The s.o.s some of you are referring too is usually made with hamburger over toast or I also use the Buddig beef, dice it up, saute it in butter, then use the flour and milk for gravy, put it over toast. Both Yummo!!!

      I would try to make them before you go or use a foil container and make them over the fire. Just keep a close eye to make sure they don’t burn.
