Southern Homestyle Sausage Gravy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Krystal Shankle

This is my mother's recipe. She made this my whole life. It's wonderful. My daddy used to always say he ate it in the army but they use to call it something a little different. When I got a little older I found out it was called "sh.. on a shingle". I'm sure you've all heard of this before. Anyways it made me laugh, still does. I hope you enjoy this.

I never have luck with southern gravy, but this time was the charm. My mom loves southern gravy, she gave me thumbs up on this one, and not every gravy fits the bell with her. I did add a bit more oil and used turkey sausage. I added a bit more flour and a little less milk (on accident). It came out fine. Thanks for the recipe.
