Sawmill Gravy

"I don’t really have a recipe, but when I make it, I make a crock pot full. It isn’t particularly good for the health-conscious, and certainly isn’t good for the waistline, but what the heck? The amounts below will make enough for about 15 people You can do all sorts of stuff with this. Serve it over hot biscuits, cornbread, or toast (my daddy used to call it “S_ _ t on a Shingle.”) Instead of sausage, you can use ground beef or turkey, or thinly sliced beef, or ham.

directions

  • Brown sausage in cast iron skillet and drain. Set aside.
  • In large cast iron skillet, melt butter. Add flour and whisk to make roux. Add half and half and evaporated milk, a little at a time, whisking constantly until the mixture is thinned out to about the consistency of tomato soup. If your skillet isn’t big enough, you can transfer it to a Dutch oven or larger, deep pot at this point.
  • Add sausage and seasonings, and continue cooking over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until mixture is hot and bubbly. You can add additional milk if it’s too thick.
  • If it’s too thin, take some of the hot mixture in a separate cup, mix in some additional flour, and combine to make paste. Add paste back into hot gravy. If you just put flour into the hot mixture, it will lump up.
