This easy homemade sausage gravy is easy to throw together with just three ingredients and 15 minutes!
It might seem a bit overwhelming to make homemade gravy, but it really doesn't have to be. Before long, you'll think there is nothing to it at and will be whipping up overnight French toast and a potato casserole to go with it- all for a perfect breakfast buffet.
But first, before I explain how to make this amazing classic breakfast recipe, let me start by saying that once you've made sausage gravy from scratch, you will never (ever) want to go back to making 'sausage' gravy from a gravy mix. Ever.
And I say that with love.
Secondly, if you don't already have one, I highly recommend using a pre-seasoned cast iron pan when making sausage gravy. Once you use a pan like this, you will use it for almost everything.
Sure, it takes a little bit longer to make -but the taste. And the aroma. I mean, seriously folks... I could live for days off the smell wafting through the air alone.
I kid you not.
It really is that good. So good in fact that at this very moment--while I'm sitting at the airport eating a bowl of clam chowder (which is rather tasty, btw)--I'm still thinking about this sausage gravy. With Homemade Drop Biscuits. Or out of this world buttermilk biscuits if you have a little more time.
How could I not?
This sausage gravy is perfect for serving over a pile of fluffy mashed potatoes too!
