Country Sausage Gravy

(8 servings)

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 small sweet onion - chopped
  • 8 ounces country sausage
  • 4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • Tabasco sauce - to taste
  • Worcestershire sauce - to taste
  • salt and pepper - to taste
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the butter and caramelize the onions and garlic. Once cooked, add the sausage and cook and crumble until sausage is fully cooked and browned.

Next, add in flour and coat everything in the pan by stirring. Add milk and cream. Continue to cook - stirring often - until thickened. Finally, add all herbs and seasonings to taste. Serve hot over country biscuits.

Tip: Before adding any salt, be sure to taste the gravy in progress. Some sausages are saltier than others. You'll want to adjust the seasonings accordingly.

For good old Southern-style biscuits and gravy. Also terrific on top of omelets and scrambled eggs.
