Super Easy Sausage Gravy

I found this recipe in an old Quick Cooking Magazine, and it is the only sausage gravy recipe I have used since. This recipe cooks up quickly on those mornings you just don't have time to make a big fuss over breakfast. The only thing I added was a dash of hot sauce. Thanks to D. Markel who had submitted this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook sausage until no longer pink. Do Not Drain.
  2. Stir in butter until melted.
  3. Sprinkle with flour.
  4. Gradually add milk. Mix well.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and hot sauce.
  6. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  7. Serve over your favorite homemade or refrigerated biscuits.
  8. I sometimes serve the sausage gravy over leftover potatoes from the previous night's dinner that I have fried up.
  9. Recipe says serves 4, I find we rarely get more than 2 servings, so I often will double this.

I made this for my family for breakfast this morning. My son and hubby ate it all and I didn't even get to try it. I followed the recipe as written. They enjoyed it but thought it needed more salt and pepper. This was my first time making sausage gravy and really was easy.

Quick, simple and downright delicious. The guys scarfed this up and used it over their pancakes. I followed your directions completely and the only modification I'll make the next time is to drain off most of the fat. It was just way too fatty and in the end I was trying to skim it off the top. To make up for that I'd add a bit more butter and more milk for the white gravy. They loved it with the splashes of hot sauce and loved every bit. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Super easy is right! Far quicker than my usual recipe and breakfast was on the table in 15 minutes! I had a package of Jimmy Dean spicy sausage that I was going to use for biscuits and gravy this past weekend & then didn't get it done. When I saw this recipe I was excited because I also had some frozen hash browns from another recipe that I wanted to use up. I made this gravy, fried the hash browns & we loved it just as much as the biscuits. Perhaps even more. We really enjoyed the texture variation that the crunchy potatoes provided. Thanks for posting, Sissy Bren!
