This is my dad's favorite breakfast. Growing up my grandmother and aunt used to make it all of the time for us. My sister and I loved it too. Yesterday on my way to visit my parents my dad called to ask if he picked up the ingredients at the store if I would make it for him.
So this morning I got up early and made a big pot of sausage gravy. The recipe is super simple.
You Will Need -
-1 pound of breakfast sausage
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/2 gallon - 1 gallon of whole milk (depending on how much you want to make)
Brown the sausage over medium heat in a large pot. Then add a cup of flour to sop up the grease from the sausage. Mash and stir it into the sausage and grease until it is all absorbed. Then add 1/2 gallon - a gallon of milk. Continue to cook over medium heat until the gravy starts to thicken, then stir, and add salt and pepper. Repeat stirring and letting it sit for a bit until you get the consistency you desire. I like to serve it pretty thick. Then you can serve it over white toast or biscuits.
It definitely isn't the healthiest of breakfasts...but it sure is tasty.
