Lynda Ann's Story

My Husband Bill is a true Florida Cracker, and he swears that my recipe for Sausage Biscuits and Gravy is THE BEST he has ever tasted anywhere! All this from his Italian Yankee!


whole milk per person
1 pkg
jimmy dean breakfast sausage (hot)
white flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder

Directions Step-By-Step

Using a large frying pan, coat bottom with a scant 1/4" Olive oil. Heat oil and add a thin 2" to 2 1/2" Sausage pattie (per person) to the pan. Fry one side of the patty till it is no longer pink, turn it over, and while the other side is browning, cut the sausage pattie into small tidbits. (Photo)
After the sausage is sufficiently browned, sprinkle white flour over the sausage crumbles and stir around in the pan until a paste like substance is made, and all of the pan's grease(there won't be much), is absorbed.

Add milk to the pan (3/4 C per person - approx.), and bring the temperature up to a slow rolling boil, be sure to watch very closley at this point so that the gravy doesn't scorch. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, while stirring the gravy until it thickens to the desired consistancy, taking care to cook the flour/milk combo for several minutes to get rid of that floury taste! (If gravy is too thin, sprinkle and mix in a little more flour, if too thick, slowly add more milk.)
Remove from heat and serve sausage gravy over warm biscuits that have been cut in half.(Photo) You can use your favorite biscuit recipe, or buy frozen or bakery biscuits. If you are lucky enough to live in the South, you can most likely find Southern Biscuit Mix in your local grocery's the very best for sure!

Thanks Dee,

It truly is good, and so simple too! And, you are right about Italian's, they are good cooks...but I had never eaten/made this dish before I married my Florida Husband Bill!

Hope you enjoy it! L. ♥
