Sausage with Milk Gravy
1 pound fresh link sausage
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut sausage into desired pieces. Place in frying pan and add a little water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce, cover, and simmer until sausage is done. Remove lid and continue to cook over medium-high heat until water evaporates and sausage browns on all sides. Remove sausage from pan. Add flour to pan drippings, about 2 tablespoons. Stir as if making a roux, until flour is slightly browned. Gradually add milk, stirring vigorously to prevent lumps and scraping up all of the browned bits in bottom of pan. The amount of milk added depends on the desired thickness. Add salt and pepper, place in gravy boat and serve immediately.
Note: For a lighter gravy. I often omit the flour and just let the milk reduce somewhat.
Pairs Well With
Works great for over biscuits in the morning and just in a bowl with some thick crusty bread dipping in it
