Easy Breakfast Sausage Gravy over Biscuits

In this easy breakfast sausage gravy; sausage, creamy, peppery gravy all smothered over homemade biscuits. It’s just about the easiest thing next to toast, that you can make.

This is one of my favorite go-to weekend breakfast meals, it takes less than thirty minutes to whip up and will easily fill everyone up!

I’ve also made this with venison sausage {calling all you hunters and hunter’s wives out there!}. This venison sausage is usually mixed with a little pork fat, but it still is leaner than your traditional pork breakfast sausage, so I always pour a little olive oil into the pan. But since I’m making this with the normal pork sausage I didn’t.

I like to use a potato masher thingy and break up the large pieces of sausage.

When the sausage is completely brown simply sprinkle a quarter cup of  flour over top.

Mix until the flour is completely absorbed.

Pour in the two cups of whole milk , sometimes I switch it up and use half & half or heavy cream… and then just stir.

Bring up to a small simmer…

Season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste.

Keep stirring until thickened.

Serve spoonfuls over warm and flakey biscuits and get ready to chow down.

This sausage gravy recipe is what weekends were made for.

    Yummmm…i'm not a breakfast biscuit person but this recipe looks amazing. One request, can you add ingredient measurements to your photos? This makes it easier to work through your recipe-by-photos approach. Thanks!
