OK, so I don't have a recipe or actual measurements for this, so I'll just kind of describe how I make my gravy.
For 1 pound of sausage, you'll need about 8 biscuits. Either a can, or I like the frozen Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits. Go ahead and preheat your oven and get your biscuits baking.
I use a 10 inch Lodge cast iron skillet. Cook and crumble the sausage. If it's really greasy once cooked, you can spoon the grease out of the pan. A lot of times there really isn't too much to drain, so I don't bother.
Shut the heat off under the sausage. I have a scoop in my flour container that I fill pretty full and I begin to sprinkle flour over the sausage. Go lightly at first just sprinkling all over. Stop and stir. If it looks like the sausage is all coated, that's what you want. If it looks like you need more, then add a little more.
Turn the heat back on the sausage at medium heat. Pour milk in the pan until it covers the floured sausage. It will seem runny at first, but as you constantly stir, it will begin to thicken. You can also add salt and pepper to taste. I also like to add some red pepper flakes, maybe a couple teaspoons. Cook and stir the gravy until it thickens. You can always add more milk if it seems too thick, but don't add more flour because it will just be lumpy.
Practice makes perfect! Eventually you'll know what it should look like and it'll be easy. I use the same pan every time, so I know at what level to pour in milk. GOOD LUCK!
