Sausage Gravy


Sausage grave takes me all the way back to 1983, West Virginia, at my future in-laws house.  I went with my future husband to meet his parents for Thanksgiving break.  It was a 14 hour trip from college and I was very nervous about meeting them for the first time.  I soon discovered that his mother was a really good cook and the queen of hospitality!  It was there that I ate her sausage gravy for the first time.  My mom had always made white/milk gravy to serve with fried chicken or pork chops, but I don’t remember her making sausage gravy.  It was super good stuff!

In the 28+ years since that time, I have made this delicious gravy countless times.  While I don’t always make great gravy with other dishes, this recipe NEVER fails me!  Served over hot biscuits, it is a great Saturday morning breakfast to serve your family or guests!
