DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium size saucepan sauté margarine, onions, celery and dash of salt for 5 minutes.
  • Add sausage and continue to cook until the sausage is fully cooked.
  • Turn heat down and simmer another 10 minutes.
  • Stir in flour and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • The bottom of the pan will be brown with bits of stuck on meat and flour.
  • The darker the crumbs stuck to the bottom, the more golden brown the gravy will be.
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in milk, cream and cheese slices.
  • Stir until you can not feel anything stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  • Place back on low heat and bring to a simmer.
  • The gravy will thicken as it cooks and may need a little extra milk if it is thicker than you like it.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes or longer, being sure to stir often.
  • Taste for seasonings, add salt and pepper if desired.
  • Normally I don't add any as the sausage flavors the gravy just right.
  • Instructions for Biscuits:Mix milk and lemon juice.
  • Mix cheese with Bisquick, sugar and garlic salt.
  • With a fork, stir in milk just until mixed.
  • Biscuits can be rolled out and cut or just dropped by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • After removing them from the oven, brush with melted margarine/butter if desired.
