- 1/3 cup of flour
- A pound of ground pork sausage
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 3 cups of milk
- 2 teaspoons of black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon of seasoned salt
- By using a big skillet, you want to put the sausage with medium high heat. Brown it so it won’t be pink anymore.
- Add butter to the pan. Stir it around so it melts
- Sprinkle flour over (the sausage). Stir it for around 2 minutes
- Pour the milk over the flour and sausage mix slowly. You need to constantly whisk it until it is smooth
- Then whisk the seasonings in. Taste it and make adjustment to the taste when necessary.
- You can immediately serve it. Don’t forget to include your favorite biscuits!
- If you like making any homemade biscuits, this gravy would be the perfect accompaniment.
- It is also great when consumed together with toast, grits, hash browns, and potatoes.
- You can store the gravy in a tight container for 4 days.
- Feel free to choose any kind of sausage that you want, including maple, hot, mild, or any type that you like.
- Make sure that the sausage is brown (no pink remains) before you add the butter.
- When you add the flour, stir the sausage and the flour until the smell of raw flour is gone. It takes 1 to 2 minutes. Your gravy will get thick thanks to the mix of fat and flour
- Once you add the seasonings, let the gravy simmer for 2 minutes – 3 minutes, top. It should be thick before you can remove it from the heat and immediately serve.
- The gravy is only 80 kcal so it is low in calorie and it is pretty healthy – not to mention also tasty.
- If you aren’t going to consume the gravy right away, you can store it. Choose the airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator. This is safe for the next 24 hours.
- If you want to reheat the gravy, put it in a saucepan (a medium one will do) and use medium low heat to warm it up. While doing so, don’t forget to occasionally stir it until it is completely heated.
