Ingredients

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh sage finely chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  • Place a large skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the sausage. Use a wooden spoon to break up the sausage. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until no longer pink and nicely browned.
  • Add butter to skillet and stir until melted. Sprinkle flour over sausage and stir to coat. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Pour in 1 cup of milk. Stir to incorporate the flour and prevent lumps. Pour in the rest of the milk and stir.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until gravy thickens, about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the milk from scalding.
  • Remove gravy from heat. Stir in pepper, salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Sprinkle with sage before serving, if desired. Serve warm over biscuits.
