This is the best gravy I have ever tried. It is rich and creamy. One of the family members was reading Paula Deen's book and this recipe was in there. So we tried and all fell in love with it. Even the picky youngsters of the family, will eat this with biscuits. It is a heart attack waiting to happen. This is only cooked twice a year because it is so sinful. I don't even like sausage and I love eating this gravy.
