Classic Sausage Gravy for Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground sausage (I prefer to use spicy sausage, but use mild if you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, more to taste
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme, minced (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large pan, brown the sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink. If there is quite a lot of fat in the pan after browning the sausage, spoon some of it off.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and sprinkle the flour on top of the sausage. Stir the sausage and flour until the flour is absorbed. Cook for about 2 minutes to cook of the raw flour taste. Slowly stream in the milk while stirring constantly until all of the milk is in the pan.
  3. At this point the gravy will seem very thin. Continue cooking it, stirring frequently, until it thickens. About 8-10 minutes. Add in the salt and pepper and taste and adjust. Classic gravy is very heavy on black pepper.
  4. If using, stir in the chopped thyme right before serving.
  5. Spoon over hot biscuits!
