This white gravy/sauce tastes like sausage, but has none. We like it on top of sausage bread (like recipe # 46692)and biscuits. A reviewer of the sausage bread used this on top of the bread and like it too! Of course, if you want to cook up some sausage and crumble it in you can, but this is a way to get some of that taste without the fat and calories. The recipe can easily be doubled. The secret is in the sage.
