Lightened Up Sausage Gravy

Did you really think I would leave you hanging like that?  Give you a biscuit recipe without giving you the sausage gravy recipe that I was so hungry for?

You probably know me better than that.   And here it is – and it’s a lightened-up recipe, to boot.  But truthfully, there is really nothing special about this gravy – it’s your simple, straight-forward flour, milk, salt and pepper sausage gravy.

Except (did you know that was coming?) that is has one little special ingredient – chicken sausage.  We are big fans of chicken sausage and I happened to find some breakfast-style chicken sausage made by Bilinski Sausage that proved to be perfect for gravy!  They are a small family-run business on the east coast and they pride themselves on providing quality, organic ingredients that are antibiotic-, gluten-, and casing-free.  We loved the flavors that we got to try!  I simply used it in place of ground pork sausage, of which, I’m not really a fan.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces breakfast-style chicken sausage
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh sage, chopped
  • 2 Tbs. flour
  • 2 cups milk (2% works best)
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 Tbs. butter
  • Salt & pepper to taste
