Simple Sausage Gravy and Biscuits-a Southern Favorite!

Simple Sausage Gravy and Biscuits-a Southern Favorite!

I know, I know, this isn’t chocolate. It’s not even a sweet. But sometimes I have to share a family favorite recipe.

My kids just can’t get enough of Sausage Gravy. We have it for breakfast and even sometimes when I’m rushed, I’ll serve it for dinner.

We serve it over biscuits- homemade, canned or frozen. They love it over toast. We even have it over leftover rolls.

The key to good sausage gravy is starting out with good sausage. You want a spicy sausage. I use Jimmy Dean but any brand will work. In the time it takes for your biscuits to bake, you can have this gravy ready.
