made this this weekend for my southern fiance. He LOVED it. I was a little nervous when I put so much milk in there, but after a few minutes of stirring, it started to thicken. I didn't think at first that I should put pepper in the mix, because of all the other spices, but after we tried it, it definitely needed some black pepper.
I made this recipe using veggie sausages but first adding them to the cuisinart for a ground sausage texture. Then sauted the sausage with vegan butter to add some fat as the veggie one is pretty lean. The final product rocked!
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.
