Lazy weekend recipe- Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
Lazy weekend Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
YOU WILL NEED:
2 T. bacon grease
1 pound bulk sausage
1/2 C. flour
4 C. whole milk, brought to a simmer
salt, to taste
fresh ground pepper, to taste
In a medium saucepan, heat milk over very low heat, stirring occasionally. Make sure to keep an eye on the milk, don’t let it boil.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet (preferably cast iron), heat the bacon grease over medium high heat until melted, then add sausage. Crumble and cook the sausage until well-browned .
Sprinkle flour over the sausage and cook, stirring, for a minute or two.
Add warm milk all at once and cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly.
Turn heat all the way down, and season well with salt and pepper, stirring and tasting frequently until the flavor is to your liking. Turn off the heat. Gravy will continue to thicken as it cools.
Serve over warm biscuits. Add some fresh fruit and some OJ and you're off to start your weekend! Enjoy yours.
