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?
- 1 lb sausage (I just grab Jimmy Dean)
- 2 C. whole milk
- 1/4 C. flour
- Brown your sausage in a medium sized skillet.
- Stir in the flour. Slowly mix in the milk. Cook on a low simmer until thickened.
- Add pepper to taste.
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 cinnamon roll waffles, baked oatmeal, or orange rolls.
