We were over at The Magary Klan for breakfast and Ian whipped this up in no time at all. Even if you don't like sausage gravy you will love the awesome smell that fills the house. It's better than a coffee smell!!
The gravy was simply the best that I have ever tasted and I have tried a lot from all of my travels. My girlfriend loved it too.
If you want to impress an overnight guest, whip this up in the morning!
