Homemade Sausage Breakfast Gravy Recipe

Like many, I don't usually have time to create a full-on, hearty breakfast every morning, but there are many traditional breakfast foods that I love. My favorite breakfasts dishes are chicken fried steak with sausage gravy or biscuits and... you guessed it, sausage gravy! I am a fan of all gravies, but sausage breakfast gravy is a king among them. It is a warm, comforting addition to any breakfast or breakfast-themed meal. We will also show you how to incorporate this simple recipe into other recipes in an upcoming post.

I learned how to make gravy from watching my mother. She always started by making a roux (flour and melted butter or pan drippings from cooked meat) and then adding a liquid. This is such a simple yet important skill to master in cooking because a roux can be used as a base for many types of gravy or thicker soups. Thanks mom!
