Ready In:




  • Cook sausage patties in a black cast iron skillet till done, obviously. Then remove the sausage and put it on some paper towels to blot up some of the grease.
  • Drain grease from pan leaving only enough to coat the bottom (about 2 tablespoons), add a handful of flour (3 tablespoons will do) to the grease and cook it, stirring ALL the time, till it turns brown.
  • Add the milk to the browned flour and stir till all the lumps are gone and it's thick. Add the drained Ro-Tel tomatoes and stir till it's the consistency that you like. (add more milk if it's too thick).
  • Crumble up the sausage and add back to the gravy then spoon it over hot biscuits.
  • Then turn around and slap the person next to you on account of it's so good you just have to slap somebody!

  1. We were a bit torn on this recipe. I think the idea for it is a really good one but for my family's tastes the Rotel just didn't work for breakfast. I might try it again sometime with Italian tomatoes & see if that suits us better. The change from plain old sausage gravy was really welcome though. Thank you for sharing, Susie!


  1. Add garlic powder to taste.
