This sausage mixture takes very little time to put together, and when poured over freshly baked biscuits, the results are out of this world! It's a great dish for breakfast or brunch. (See my recipe for Southern Bisquits.)
Sausage Mixture: Break sausage into bits in a large frying pan.
Add diced onions.
Fry onions and sausage together until both are browned.
Drain mixture onto paper towels and set aside.
White Sauce: To make a white sauce, an easy method is to use a medium or large saucepan, and it requires constant attendance, but it only takes a few minutes to make a delicious sauce.
Melt the butter over a low flame.
Add the flour and stir continuously.
(You do not want the flour to brown; rather, stir the flour and butter and watch carefully as this slow cooking method takes the starch flavor away and makes for a better sauce.) Just as the flour mixture is beginning to color and looks like it might get brown, slowly add some milk and keep stirring.
As the mixture thickens, add more milk and keep stirring, careful that the sauce doesn't burn.
Soon, the sauce will be at the right consistency depending upon how much milk you use-- you'll want a thick sauce, not thin.
Add the sausage and onion mixture to the sauce, and mix well.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the creamed sausage over freshly baked bisquits.
