This classic biscuits and gravy recipe is pure breakfast comfort food! A fool-proof homemade sausage gravy poured over fluffy, warm biscuits is the perfect way to start any morning. You’re going to love how simple it is!
Mmmm… if this isn’t decadent winter comfort food, I don’t know what is! During the week, I usually stick to a light, healthy breakfast like a smoothie or yogurt, but on weekends… it’s on like Donkey Kong.
Most of you probably wouldn’t remember this recipe from WAY back in the Love Grows Wild archives, but this was actually the very first recipe I ever posted! When my husband and I were back in our “dating” days, he would drive to Casey’s (yes, the gas station) on weekends to grab a couple to-go boxes of biscuits and gravy. I made it my mission to come up with a sausage gravy recipe that would break his Casey’s habit, and by golly, I did it! This recipe makes the perfect thick and creamy gravy that starts with a hearty portion of breakfast sausage and ends with a generous sprinkling of freshly-cracked black pepper. I know that making your own gravy can be somewhat intimidating, but I promise you, this one is practically fool-proof!
- 1 pound breakfast pork sausage
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 4 cups 2% milk
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 8 biscuits ( homemade or store-bought)
