Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
roll of bulk pork sausage
1/2 c
bacon fat or conola oil
1/4 c
flour
3 TO 4 c
milk, or as needed
ground red pepper
salt to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown sausage in a pan, breaking up and crumbling.
2
Once the meat is fully browned, scoop it out with a slotted spoon, leaving any drippings in the skillet.
3
Add the butter or bacon fat to the same skillet and bring the pan up to medium heat.
4
Slowly whisk in the flour, stirring constantly until smooth, cooking for at least 5 minutes.
5
Slowly begin whisking in the first two cups of milk until fully incorporated and mixture begins to bubble. This will provide thick gravy. Continue whisking in additional milk a little bit at a time, until the gravy reaches the desired consistency.
6
Grind some pepper directly into the gravy, add salt to taste, and return the sausage to the skillet.
7
Stir to mix, Serve over your favorite biscuits!
