Spicy Sausage Gravy for Biscuits
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This sausage gravy will definitely spice up your morning! We've made biscuits and gravy recipes before, but this one is a bit different. Using spicy sausage and pepper flakes add a real robust flavor to the gravy but don't make the dish too spicy. This makes a rather large pot of gravy so it will be great if you're feeding a crowd.
Note: We added 3 1/4 cups of milk to create a thicker gravy. If you like a thinner gravy, add the 4 cups per the directions. The Test Kitchen

1 sticksalted butter (or unsalted and you add salt)

How to Make Spicy Sausage Gravy for Biscuits
- This sausage gravy is phenomenal and can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat just slide in the microwave, heat, stir, and heat.
Bet you were all thinking there was some light fluffy biscuit recipe included? Not!! I prefer to save time and buy the frozen Pillsbury Southern biscuit dough. Any biscuit recipe will do if you like the mess and wish the pride of using a homemade biscuit.
The good thing about this recipe is it teaches a novice how to make an excellent white sauce.
