Breakfast or Dinner this Old Fashioned Sausage Gravy and Biscuits Recipe is a hit for the entire family. Under 30 minutes from stove to table!





  1. Heat a large skillet (we like to use a cast iron skillet when possible) over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, break it up and cook until well browned and cooked through, 7-10 minutes. It should look like cooked ground beef.
  2. Move the browned sausage to a bowl (save the rendered fat in the pan!)
  3. Whisk the flour into the fat and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Pour the milk into the skillet while whisking and bring the gravy to a boil.
  4. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes until the gravy is thick.
  5. Stir in the sausage and season with pepper. Split the biscuits in half and divide them among plates.
  6. Top each biscuit with some of the gravy and serve immediately, or however you choose to eat it!
