Ingredients needed for this – ‘How to Make Sausage Gravy’ recipe:

1 roll (1 lb. size) of breakfast pork-sausage, mild   

4 tablespoons pork-sausage pan grease/drippings, and/or butter

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

Let’s Cook

Remove the plastic wrapping from around the pork-sausage roll, and cut crosswise into one half inch slices. I use Jimmy Dean® Regular Pork-Sausage when I make this recipe, ‘How to Make Sausage Gravy,’ but if you prefer something more flavorful, like a hot flavored pork-sausage, then give it a try!

Place the slices into a 10-inch frying plan. As the slices begin to cook, use a metal spatula, or a large spoon, to break the pork-sausage into pieces. Continue breaking the meat up to resemble a scrambled texture, and cook until done.

When done, remove the meat from the frying pan, and roughly measure the grease left in the pan, i.e., the drippings. You will need four tablespoons of grease/drippings. If you do not have four tablespoons, then add enough butter to make the measurement.

Place the frying pan back on medium-low heat, and stir four tablespoons of flour into the grease. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan as you stir. The consistency will be thick. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in a little of the milk.

Place the frying pan back on the heat, and slowly stir in the remainder of the milk. Continue stirring over a medium-low heat, as the sauce thickens.

Add the scrambled meat to the sauce, stir to blend, and continue heating This will ensure that the meat is hot, and the flavors are well blended.
