Sausage Gravy for Biscuits and Gravy

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Munchkin Mama

I know there are about a million recipes for this, but none exactly like mine. I'm posting it more for myself so I don't lose it. This turns out with a slight orange color due to the paprika, so if you want a traditional white sauce you can just omit it. Just do yourself a favor and don't try to substitute powdered sugar for the flour. My husband tried to make me dinner one night and used the wrong canister. He couldn't figure out why it wasn't thickening like mine always did. It was not a good thing, but God love him for trying!

Most delicious recipe. I did substitute garlic salt for seasoning salt, but I love garlic. I also have added a small jar of dried beef instead of the sausage making chip beef gravy. All in all my absolut fav! Thank you for posting this.
