Sage, Sausage & Cream Gravy

The hubs loves breakfast foods – and if we go out for breakfast loves going to a diner and getting biscuits & gravy. I ran across this recipe for sage, sausage & cream gravy and gave it a try for the diner style breakfast he enjoys but at home. It was a hit.

He really enjoyed it and I now have something to fall back on should I not want to get dressed some morning but he wants diner food! Please note, I did not tweak this to be allergy safe as I’m not a fan of this dish – this was purely a labor of love for my main squeeze.

SAGE, SAUSAGE & CREAM GRAVY

2 tbsp. bacon grease (ok to use 1 tbsp. oil + 1 tbsp. butter)
1 lb bulk sausage (I enjoy using ground turkey sausage)
½ cup flour
4 cups whole milk, brought to a simmer
Pinch of dry sage
Salt & pepper to taste

Heat a medium sauce pan over low heat, warm milk on low, stir occasionally – keep an eye on it so it doesn’t boil
In a large skillet (good to use cast iron if you have it) heat bacon grease over medium high heat – add sausage
Crumble & cook until well browned and no longer pink
Sprinkle flour over sausage & cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes
Add warm milk all at once, cook – stirring, until it is thickened and bubbly
Turn heat all the way down, add sage, season with salt & pepper
Continue stirring & tasting until the flavor it to your liking
Turn off heat
Gravy will thicken as it cools – serve over warm biscuits
