Cream gravy recipe

(1/3) > >>

This stuff is good to serve with Chicken Fried Steak, or for breakfast with biscuits, or over fried chicken. This recipe makes a lot but you can cut it down to make what you need.

1 pound breakfast sausage
1/4 cup flour
3 cups milk
Season with salt and freshly ground pepper

Cook the sausage crumbled up. Pull the cooked sausage and reserve the grease. Make a roux with the flour and milk in a bowl. Add the roux to the hot grease. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the sausage back to the hot gravy. Enjoy!

Note that for a meal of 1/2 pound of chicken strips last night I cooked 1/4 pound of sausage with 1 1/2 cups of milk and 1/4 cup of flour. It was plenty of gravy!

Hint, put your flour in the pan and cook it with the sausage greasend sausage till slightly brown, that is a roux.  It has better flavor and then you can add the milk right to the pan and have less dishes to do. ;)


I needed less flour and more milk the time I made it. The sausage went on a paper plate when it was done.

Howdy Royce,

Plus one for what Del said. Cooking the flour in the fat can actually brown the flour. The cajuns will do this until the flour and fat becomes a rich brown color. That adds a "nutty" flavor that is found in so many of their dishes. Browning the flour some will up the flavor. Just be sure to keep an eye on the roux, stirring a lot so it doesn't burn (that tastes bad and can't be saved).
