My Southern friends know that sausage gravy over biscuits is one of the best recipes to enjoy for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or a midnight snack. You can’t go wrong with this amazing, flavorful, delicious, homemade recipe!

Fluffy, buttery, homestyle biscuits paired with a mouthwatering gravy made from milk and sausage will have everyone asking for seconds. It comes together easily in just one skillet, too. For other great southern recipes, try our easy chicken and dumplings, our delicious cornbread from scratch, or our old fashioned custard pie.

COUNTRY BISCUITS AND SAUSAGE GRAVY INGREDIENTS

country biscuits and sausage gravy raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 1 pound uncooked breakfast sausage
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • biscuits (canned, frozen, or homemade)
  • chives
  • red pepper flakes 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Sausage: You can grab regular, sweet, spicy… whatever your heart desires.

Meat: To make this meal even heartier, you can use two pounds of meat instead of one. You could mix a pound of sweet and a pound of spicy though as well if you like!

HOW TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY BISCUITS AND SAUSAGE GRAVY RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat your oven and get your biscuits going.

STEP TWO: In a large skillet, break up the ground sausage. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of black pepper and cook until brown.

STEP SIX: Spoon over your fresh from the oven biscuits and then top with chives or more red pepper flakes if desired.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your sausage gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Freeze your sausage gravy in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. I believe freezing the gravy changes the texture a little. Also, you could crumble your sausage, cook it, and then freeze that. Then prepare your gravy using the frozen sausage later.

That’s one reason I love biscuits and gravy so much. I almost always have these staples inside my cupboards, making it a simple go to meal at the end of a busy day — or the start of one.

    Instead of whole milk I use a can of Carnations evaporated milk and 2can of water. My mother in law showed me this years ago and she is from the south

    Yet another one of your DELICIOUS recipes has made it to my “Favorites” board! Stephanie, in over 45 years of cooking, I’ve never made these. Your recipe and instructions were spot on. My husband agreed that we never have to go out for biscuits and gravy again! Thank you for helping me be a kitchen rock star!
