Country Sausage Gravy

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mercy

Growing up, we ate this gravy over slices of white bread, sliced ripe tomatoes, scrambled eggs and, of course, biscuits. Sometimes I use maple sausage, sometimes I add 1/4 cup of minced onions and sometimes I add a shake of crushed red pepper. Use your imagination!

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! I found this & made it the next morning for hubby, which is rare for me--I tend to "mull over" a recipe carefully b/f taking it into the kitchen! I used homemade turkey sausage which I cooked beforehand, then melted 1 tbsp light butter & used the whole amt of milk directed in recipe. Actually, I ended up needing to add a few more tbsp of milk to keep it creamy, but I think that was cuz I simmered it on too high of heat at first. I added more salt & pepper cuz hubby likes that, and served it over a toasted whole wheat English muffin. He loved it & was so happy to have found this for him. Thanks again!
