Simple Sausage Gravy is perfect to serve over toast, biscuits, potatoes, and more! You’ll love this versatile and quick gravy!

Sausage gravy and biscuits.

Sausage gravy and homemade biscuits is one of those breakfasts generally reserved for really special occasions: Christmas morning, New Years Day, the third Saturday of the month. You know, really special occasions. We’re in love with this simple sausage gravy because of how easy it is to make, and how warm and soothing it is, especially on a crisp morning.

You have a lot of sausage options when it comes to sausage gravy, and we prefer ground sausage. Use country style ground sausage for a plain option, or flavor things up with something like maple and sage ground sausage or a spicy Italian ground sausage. Pick a flavor that sounds good to you. If you live in an area where you can only find sausage in casings, you can slice up your sausage and have large pieces, or depending on the sausage, you might be able to remove it from the casing to have ground sausage. There is really no wrong way to enjoy sausage gravy.

How Can I make my sausage gravy gluten free?

This recipe uses 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour as the thickening agent. You can also thicken sausage gravy using 2 tablespoons of cornstarch in place of the flour for a gluten free option.

What should I serve sausage gravy on?

Sausage gravy is most commonly served over biscuits. You can also serve it over toast or potatoes. It goes really well over hash browns or fried potatoes for a great grain-free option.

Make Ahead Instructions:

Sometimes waking up in the morning and making breakfast is the last thing a person wants to do. To make your morning go smoother, you can make this recipe the night before and then just heat it up in the morning without losing any of its flavor.

Storage and Reheating Instructions:

Sausage gravy can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for three to four days. Sausage gravy can also be frozen in airtight heavy-duty freezer bags for up to 1 month. Reheat large amounts in a saucepan on the stovetop over medium-low heat, or in the microwave in 30-second increments, until warmed through.
