Sausage gravy with biscuits is a staple in the South. I can remember back to when Jim and I were first married and would visit my grandparents on their farm in Middlesex County, Virginia. We'd usually arrive after dinner on a Friday night. As we sat in the den and chatted with my grandmother, she would turn her head to Jim, and get a smile on her face and ask “Will you make sausage gravy and biscuits while you are here?” Of course, Jim was more than happy to oblige and has tweaked this sausage gravy recipe over the years to make it super easy to prepare.

Easy Sausage Gravy

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

This easy sausage gravy is bursting with flavor and is delicious.


  • Two 12-ounce packages of pork sausage; prefer Jimmy Dean with Sage
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until cooked through and browned (approximately 10-15 minutes)
  2. Once the sausage is cooked, drain the sausage, but don't clean the skillet - you'll want to keep the rendered fat.
  3. Whisk 1/3 cup flour into the rendered fat in the skillet.
  4. Whisk in the milk until smooth and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until thickened, approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Add drained sausage to the gravy and stir.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.


If gravy is too thin, add a little more flour.

If too thick, add milk 1-2 tablespoons at a time).

If you prefer, you can substitute hamburger for sausage.
