Just a hint to all of you; I found that Jimmy Dean makes a mild pork sausage that is 50% less fat than other brands. This is great news, because the sausage is delicious, but if you need lots of pan drippings to make sausage gravy, you should prob pick the full-fat pork sausage. In my recent experience, I got less than 1 tsp of pan drippings from 1lb of the Jimmy Dean 50% less fat. I'm not rating this recipe, because I didn't use it to make my gravy and biscuits, but since it calls for Jimmy Dean brand, I thought I'd share my recent experience. :)
