How to Make Sausage Gravy


  1. In a large skillet cook sausage over medium heat until browned and crumbly. Remove meat from pan.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp bacon drippings to skillet and stir until melted. Add flour to skillet and stir until the meat is coated and flour incorporated into all and the mixture becomes fragrant (a little nutty), about 3 minutes.

    NOTE: If you have fatty sausage, you won't need the bacon fat. Some sausage is fairly lean, so you may need to add it in.
  3. Add milk until desired consistency. Add salt & pepper to taste. Add the sausage back in and stir well.

    Serve over biscuits, toast, waffles, etc.
