Breakfast for dinner! Truth be told, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Mostly because I love eggs. I mean, I REALLY love eggs. My husband and I were grocery shopping and I found a good sale on some breakfast sausage and he instantly said, "OHHHHHH please make sausage gravy and biscuits". Well what kind of wife would I be if I didn't make it for him??? I make it pretty regularly, I don't know, I just kind of thought it was something everyone could make. Truth is, I think someone will be able to benefit from the recipe. I always use half and half. Milk isn't rich enough and heavy cream is just to much, half and half makes a beautiful smooth, creamy, dreamy gravy! I also add butter, because butter belongs in breakfast food! Hey! I didn't make the rules, but whoever did....God BLESS them!
I made a video to go with this post. I will post here. Please hit SUBSCRIBE on my YouTube channel, I would love to have you there!!
I am so ready for winter. That's all.
1 lb breakfast sausage
2 T. butter (divided)
5 T. flour
2 cups half and half (1 qt)
salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet, brown your breakfast sausage until completely cooked. Add in 1T. butter and flour. Stir until the butter is melted and the flour is no longer visible. Add in your half and half slowly, constantly stirring. Salt and pepper to taste at this point. I did add a couple of grinds of salt, while the sausage is a salty, for me, it didn't lend enough salt for the additional ingredients. I like lots of pepper too! It will take a couple of minutes to come to a boil, but keep stirring. When it begins to boil, turn down the heat and let it simmer until smooth, thick and creamy! Add in the last of the butter and stir it in until melted
As you can see, I served this on biscuits, but love it just over toast as well. With a side of scrambled eggs, it was our "breakfast for dinner"!
