I always have a basket of hot fluffy biscuits and a skillet full of thick sausage gravy. I grew up with my grandmother and that is almost like a tradition. We celebrate deep-south always, every day. And nothing is more Southern than biscuits and gravy. Homemade biscuits with this easy creamiest sausage gravy are all that your family deserved. Sausage gravy is the richest topping, side dish, and full of protein. And it is super easy to whip up with just a few simple readily available ingredients.
1 pound bulk pork sausage (ground breakfast sausage)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 ½ cups whole milk
1 teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
How to make Easy Sausage Gravy
Step 1: Cook the sausage in a large saute pan. Use a wooden spoon to break them into pieces. Continue to cook, stirring and breaking into smaller pieces until the sausage is brown.
Step 2: Add in the flour into the cooked sausage followed by thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix well to coat the sausage entirely and absorb the grease. Stir some more and continue cooking for 2 minutes more.
Step 3: Add in 3 cups of milk and stir. Simmer until thick and smooth. Then, turn the heat off. You can pour in an extra half cup of milk if the gravy becomes too thick.
Step 4: Serve the gravy over warm homemade biscuits, English muffins, or toast. Enjoy!
