Wonderful version of this comfort-food favorite!

"Nothing goes as well well with biscuits, as does a good rich, creamy, sausage gravy. This simple, tasty sausage gravy fits that bill. I decided to try this recipe because it included nutmeg. I have never used nutmeg in sausage gravy. It made for a very interesting and very delicious taste twist. If your not a nutmeg fancier, you may want to reduce the nutmeg a little -- say, from about 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. -- but don't eliminate it altogether. Nutmeg is what makes this version unique."


1 pound sage-flavored pork sausage
1/4 cup Onion; minced
6 Tbs Flour
1 quart Whole Milk
1/2 tsp Poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp Salt
worcestershire sauce; a few dashes
Tobasco sauce; a few dashes

Original recipe makes 0



Cook sausage and onion in a large saucepan. Remove the sausage and leave the drippings. If there is less than 2 Tbsp of drippings in the pan (because most sausage is pretty lean now), add 2 or 3 Tbsp of butter or canola oil. Stir in flour, cook over medium heat until flour is golden. Stir in milk and seasonings. Cook over med-high heat until it's boiling and thickened. Add sausage back in. Serve over biscuits.

I cannot tell you how many times I've made this. We LOVE it. I've never liked sausage. I've never tried it because I've always thought it looked unappealing. But GOOD GAWD this is good! My husband is a southerner and he says it's the best gravy he's ever had. DELICIOUS.

Wonderful, and very easy recipe for those who have problems with making gravy. This makes it easy.

It was good but I added a few changes. First I cooked bacon in the pan and used the grease to cook in the sausage for more flavored drippings. Then I opted out for nutmeg (didn't have any) and used some Italian seasonings. Then at the end it was still a little too flour tasting for my taste so I uses some beef bouillon

Very good....only thing I did different was a 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg instead of a half teaspoon :)

I make this with my father's homemade sausage. It is fantastic! I will never use a envelope mix again. And I serve this over the buttermilk biscuit recipe that I also got from big oven! So hearty and delicious!
