ButterMilk Biscuits with Sausage Gravy

from ButterYum
makes 4-6 servings


  • 1 pound breakfast sausage, cooked (reserve fat drippings)

  • 4 tablespoons fat (sausage or bacon drippings, melted butter)

  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour

  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley


  1. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, melt fat and add flour; whisking until until the mixture bubbles for a full minute. 

  2. Add milk, salt, pepper, sage, and parsley; continue whisking until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens. 

  3. Turn off heat and stir in cooked sausage. 

  4. Serve over homemade Buttermilk Biscuits. 

Note: The gravy will thicken as it cools - if needed, stir in a splash of milk to thin (works well when heating leftover gravy as well).
