I am happy to share my homemade sausage biscuits and gravy recipe. My husband LOVES this recipe. In fact, I think it may be his favorite thing I make. I get the request to make this all the time. It is so delicious. He said that I have ruined him to order it at any restaurant, because they can never compete. I’ll take that compliment.
The gravy is super easy to make, and it doesn’t take too much time. Most of the time is getting it to thicken. But I can whip this recipe up in about 20 minutes.
I guess I shouldn’t say that it is completely homemade because I buy Pillsbury biscuits, I don’t make homemade biscuits, and I never have. Who has the time? But my gravy is homemade, easy and so, so, so delicious if I don’t say so myself.
1 pound Jimmy Dean Hot Recipe Sausage Roll
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups whole milk
Salt and black pepper to taste
Pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
8 prepared biscuits
Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon, leaving the drippings in the pan. Stir in the butter until melted. Add flour, and stir until smooth. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until light brown. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in cooked sausage. Reduce heat, and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. If gravy becomes too thick, stir in a little more milk.
