Sausage Gravy



  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut in cold diced butter, using a pastry blender or your hands until it looks like large course crumbs.
  • Stir in cold milk just until incorporated. Let sit for no more than 2 minutes.
  • Using a large scoop, scoop 12 biscuits onto prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 15 minutes until tops are just starting to turn golden brown.

Sausage Gravy

  • In a large skillet with deep sides, brown and crumble sausage over medium heat until fully cooked.
  • Do NOT drain grease.
  • Sprinkle flour over sausage and stir to mix together, cooking for a minute.
  • Slowly pour in milk while whisking at the same time. Whisk until the flour is completely blended.
  • Whisk in salt and black pepper.
  • Let simmer for 2-3 minutes while constantly stirring slowly, until thickened.
  • Once thickened, remove from heat and ladle over warm biscuits.


Taste the gravy before serving. You might like a little more salt and pepper.
If the gravy is to thick for your liking, you can always add a touch more milk to thin it out a bit. I would add it ¼ cup at a time.
