First things first, I promise that there wasn’t an intentional abandonment of this blog – but, you know, life sometimes gets in the way. But, I’m back!!
This afternoon, after working on some redecorating in the morning (and not getting breakfast, unless you count coffee) – I decided that I wanted some sausage gravy and biscuits for brunch. I decided to keep it simple and just use canned biscuits – let’s be honest, the sausage gravy is really the star anyway!
So, canned biscuits in the oven and onto the gravy.
I started by browning a 1 pound chub of Jimmy Dean’s breakfast sausage (don’t drain). To the sausage, I added in 3/4 cup of flour (1/4 at a time) and let the flour start to cook with the sausage – when you don’t see any raw flour, add the next 1/4 cup, until you’ve put the full 3/4 cup in.
The next part is to add in 3 cups of milk and stir everything through. Once it starts to thicken, reduce the flame to simmer. Keep stirring as it thickens.
Finally, because we like our gravy to have lots of black pepper, I added in 1 whole tsp of black pepper, along with 3/4 tsp of salt.
This recipe comes together pretty quickly, so make sure you time it right with your biscuits.
It’s so simple, that I’m not writing up a recipe – but you should be able to make it easily enough from the information here!
