1 lb. sage flavored pork sausage
1/2 C. butter
6 Tbsp. all purpose flour
1 Quart milk
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
dash Worcestershire sauce
Crumble and cook sausage over medium-low heat. Remove sausage from pan, leaving the drippings. (If you feel you have enough drippings, you can skip the butter. I just never seem to have enough drippings.) Add butter to drippings in the pan. Brown butter over medium-low heat. Usually 2-3 minutes. Stir in flour; cook over medium-low heat about 5 minutes or until mixture bubbles and turns golden. Stir in 1 C. of milk, letting it thicken. Continue to add milk in 1 C. at a time. Letting the gravy thicken each time. When adding the last cup of milk, also add the crumbled sausage, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings. Cook, and stir until thickened. Yields 4-6 servings.
Refrigerate any leftovers.
You can serve this over biscuits or bread. I use tube biscuits. My mom(Amos'Mary), likes making the Bisquick biscuits. My sister Susie prefers homemade bread. So use whatever you like! My guys would eat this gravy on any kind of bread. We've even used store bought bread before too!
This gravy warms up really well too. So it can be made in advance.(Store in fridge) I've even made it a few days before a camping trip. So all i had to do was heat it up! And it fills you up! Biscuits and gravy is a 'stick to your ribs' kinda breakfast!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
