Super Easy Sausage Gravy Recipe (1)

Last summer my sister in law made this amazing Sausage Gravy while we were on a camping trip and I was in SHOCK at how delicious it was.

Mostly because she was able to make it in her trailer, with just a few basic ingredients, and it tasted just like a country diner!

I was hooked at first taste.

This sausage gravy is ultra rich and definitely NOT on the healthy side, but man… it’s so good.

Ingredients Needed

Here’s the basic list of ingredients you’ll need in order to make this simple sausage gravy at home. As always, you can find the full list of ingredients located in the printable recipe card below.

  • Ground Hot Sausage – the hot sausage gives the gravy a nice kick of flavor, but it’s not too spicy.
  • All Purpose Flour – used for thickening the gravy
  • Heavy Cream + Whole Milk – used in combination to give that luscious creamy texture
  • Salt + Pepper – plenty of pepper, trust me!

How To Make Sausage Gravy

You can have this white gravy ready to in under 20 minutes, making it perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch.

BROWN THE SAUSAGE Start by cooking the sausage in a large pan and breaking it up as it cooks. The sausage will release some fat when it renders down. You’ll use this to create a roux (thickener) for the gravy.

ADD FLOUR Once the sausage is browned, simply add in the flour and cook for an additional 2 minutes, until the flour is absorbed into the grease from the sausage.

WHISK IN MILK AND CREAM Gradually whisk in the heavy cream and whole milk, constantly stirring so the gravy does not get clumpy. Once the milks are added, season with pepper and salt to taste.

My sister in law uses all heavy cream, but I like to add in whole milk in place of part of the heavy cream so it’s not as thick. You could even use all whole milk in place of the heavy cream to create a thinner, and lighter gravy.

When it’s simmered and ready to go, you will have a pan full of thick and creamy gravy.

Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

There’s something so satisfying about a hot buttermilk biscuit with thick and warm sausage gravy on top. I like to split my biscuit in half, then spoon the gravy over each side.

Eat with a fork and knife and serve with a side of scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. YUM!
