DIRECTIONS

  • If desired, peel frozen farmer sausage. (The best way is to hold it under a trickle of warm water.) Break sausage into 4-6 chunks.
  • Place potatoes and carrots into a roaster or large casserole dish. Add water to cover the bottom of the dish.
  • Place frozen sausage chunks over top (so drippings will flavour the vegetables), cover, and bake at 375F for 1-1/2 hours.
  • Remove from oven and drain juices from casserole dish into a saucepan. (You may want to put the sausage and vegetables in a serving dish now and keep warm in the oven.).
  • For gravy: Mix flour and milk together, adding milk gradually so a paste forms and slowly gets thicker -- you don't want lumps! (Actually, a Tupperware gravy shaker works best for this. You can just throw it all together and shake it up without worrying about lumps at all.).
  • Add milk mixture to drippings and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until gravy is thickened. (Depending on how much water content your sausage had, you may need to add a little more flour or milk to achieve the desired thickness.).
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
