I've been making this exact recipe for years and my family loves it for Sunday breakfast. The only thing I add is just a pinch of salt. I also cook the flour and sausage for 2-3 minutes before adding the milk to burn off the "floury" taste. Great recipe!

This is a great breakfast, for more flavor try leaving a tablespoon of the grease in the gravy and for a kick try cayenne pepper. Mmm good!

I have no problem admitting that I'm no cook. I was very anxious when I was asked to bring a food item to a breakfast potluck we were having at work one day. I found this recipe and it looked easy enough so I made the gravy and took it to work. I was relieved to see that two other ladies had also brought gravy (just in case mine was no good). Well, I work in a medical clinic and it was particularly busy that day so I didn't get to eat for several hours. When I went into the breakroom, I was shocked to see that my gravy was gone and the other two gravies were barely touched. I didn't get to taste the gravy I had made so that night when I got home from work, I made biscuits and gravy for dinner. I have to say, this is the BEST gravy I have ever had! It turned out so wonderfully and now I can say that there is ONE food item that I can make that actually tastes good!

This is a all most foolproof recipe. I use this to feed 9 men at a church breakfest, and the loved it. I've always had trouble making gravy thick enough, or with out lumps, but not with this one. It's Great!

Very good! I'm ashamed to say that I've been making this from a mix from a bakery, and it was so wonderful to find an recipe from scratch that was just as good! I left the fat in from the sausage and added just a little salt. Very delicious! Will probably make this every Saturday morning. Thank you for posting!

I just made this for breakfast and it was so great! Super easy and really filling also. We really enjoyed it. I didn't make a single substitution or alteration, this recipe is perfect the way it is. Thanks so much for posting.

Thanks for this recipe! I had a hard time getting sausage gravy to thicken in the past, but this helped a lot. One caution: My husband accidentally picked up some sort of diet or low fat sausage. Unless you are on a strict diet please get regular sausage. The diet stuff was tasteless! Just a tip :-)

Very good. I made a half recipe. I also even used a 1/4 less milk than half quantity. (wanted it even thicker) I used skim milk since that's what I had. It was good cause the sausage was rich. Note to self: Would be better with regular milk. Used the sausage from Round Hill, VA roadside store. Felt like I woke up in the mountains eating this breakfast. Yummy.
