This simple sausage gravy pairs so well with warm biscuits, especially the homemade kind which are always better. To make it, you’re going to need breakfast sausage, flour, garlic powder, and milk. A little salt and black pepper adds the right amount of seasoning (the exact amount depends on the brand of sausage you’re using). You can have this on the table in about 15 minutes and it certainly makes a welcome change from toast or Cornflakes!
There’s nothing hard about making gravy from scratch. You also know exactly what goes into it, unlike the readymade kind you can pick up at the store, which has various preservatives and other chemicals in there. Try this recipe. It’s so good, especially when paired with bacon and eggs for a filling weekend family brunch. You can tweak the seasonings if you want to spice it up a little, or use spicy breakfast sausage for an extra kick.
