  • 12 buttermilk biscuits cooked
  • 1 pound pork sausage
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  1. Cook sausage, breaking into large chunks. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Use a paper towel to wipe out excess grease from sausage. Leave brown bits from sausage.
  3. Add oil and flour to pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.
  4. Slowly whisk in milk.
  5. Add pepper, salt and red pepper flakes.
  6. Cook over medium heat until milk warms and thickens. Stir often to avoid scorching.
  7. Add sausage back to gravy mixture.
  8. Split two muffins and place on a plate.
  9. Ladle gravy over muffins.
Recipe Notes

I used 2% milk. Other types of milk can be used.
If gravy is too thick, stir in a bit more milk.
