Super Sausage Gravy and Cheater Biscuits

Recipe by breezermom
READY IN: 26mins


  • 4
    mary b's southern style frozen biscuits, baked as instructed
  • 1
    lb sausage, I prefer Bryan
  • 2
    tablespoons flour
  • 2
    cups whole milk
  • salt and pepper


  • First, cut 4 sausage patties off your sausage roll. Cook until done. Remove and keep warm. (This is optional, if you don't want a sausage patty on the side, you can just cut off enough sausage from the roll to equal 4 sausage patties -- my son always ask for a sausage patty on the side LOL).
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cook your biscuits.
  • Place the rest of the sausage in the skillet (do not use a non stick skillet, they don't make good gravy -- cast iron is preferred!) Break up the sausage so that it is in small pieces. Cook until there is no longer any pink color in the sausage. Remove any grease over 2 1/2 tbsp, but do not remove more than that!
  • Reduce the heat to low, and slowly stir in the flour. Stir until blended, and cook for about 1 minute.
  • Slowly stir in the milk, increasing the heat to medium high until boiling. You must constantly stir to keep from getting lumps in your gravy! Once it is boiling, reduce the heat, and continue to stir until your gravy reaches the desired consistency. For my house, this takes about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the amount of grease in the sausage. Be sure to check your biscuits to make sure they are not getting overdone -- remove them from the oven when they are at your desired brownness.
  • Once the gravy has reached your desired thickness, sprinkle in the salt and pepper according to your taste. I've never tested this, but my mama and grandmama told me that if you add the salt and pepper too early, your gravy will be "flat". I don't know what that means, but I'm not about to break their rule!
