  • 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


  • Cook sausage, breaking into large chunks. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Use a paper towel to wipe out excess grease from sausage. Leave brown bits from sausage.
  • Add oil and flour to pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Slowly whisk in milk.
  • Add pepper, salt and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook over medium heat until milk warms and thickens. Stir often to avoid scorching.
  • Add sausage back to gravy mixture.
  • Split two muffins and place on a plate.
  • Ladle gravy over muffins.


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