Good instructions in the recipe! Gravy usually scares me but this recipe came out lump free! It did desperately need some salt and pepper but other than that is was a hit for Christmas morning.

Normally I make sausage gravy from a store bought powder, and it is "sausage flavored" gravy with no actual meat. It's just easier. But my son one night asked for sausage gravy for breakfast the next morning, said he craved it. I knew I had no powder, so I came here, found the recipe and made it. The only deviation was I used 1/2 lb sausage (it's all I had). Excellent sausage gravy! My son and the rest of the family loved it.
