Easy Peasy White Gravy

Matt loves sausage white gravy and biscuits and had told me he wanted it for breakfast one day this weekend. Told me I should buy a packet at the grocery store to make it. (Packet is $1.17 at Meijer.) I figured this was a simple request so I added it to my shopping list.

One of my co-workers overheard me on the phone and was appalled! Okay, maybe appalled is too strong of a word...
She did tell me I should make it from scratch though since it is so simple to make.

So I did.
It was easy.
And it tasted delicious.
I figure I might as well post the directions on here in case anyone else wants to know how to make this simple breakfast gravy.

Sausage Gravy
1 Pound of Sausage
2 Tbsp of Butter
2 Tbsp of Flour
Onion Powder
Red Pepper Flakes

What to do with those ingredients:
Cook sausage.
Once cooked add butter and continue to cook for about 2 minutes or until butter is fully melted.
Stir in flour. Make sure your sausage looks dry. Add more flour if needed. (I used 3 Tbsp which I think was too much since it got a little thicker then we would have liked it.)
Add all pepper, onion powder, paprika, and red pepper flakes to taste.
Pour enough milk to cover 1/4 of pan and mix.
Continue to add milk until your white gravy is the consistency you want.
Serve on biscuits.


Very easy to make and cheaper than buying the $1.17 packet from the grocery store. Next up, I need to learn how to make homemade biscuits. I wonder how hard those are to make???

On a side note, while at the Glendale festival Matt and I tried this coffee.
I don't even like coffee and I thought this stuff was good.
It claims to be 18 servings and you only need 2 tsp. However, that is for 6 ounces and who really only drinks that small amount? We both had a mug full and each used 3 spoon fulls.
At $20 for 3 packets, we will need to find something else to drink once these are gone.
