  • Sauce Pan
  • Wooden Spoon


  • 1 lb Breakfast sausage
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Minced Onion
  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • 2 cup 2% Milk
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley for garnish


  • In a sauce pan, add ground sausage and dried minced onions. Begin crumbling sausage using a wooden spoon. Cook for 5 minutes on medium-high heat breaking the sausage up completely.
  • Once the sausage is cooked through add the unsalted butter and seasoned salt then mix.
  • Next, sprinkle flour over sausage, mix well until all the flour is absorbed.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and pour in the milk and add the black pepper. Stir milk until the mixture is thick (about 5 minutes).
  • Remove the sausage gravy from the heat, add 2 teaspoons fresh minced parsley to the gravy, stir, and then ladle on top of fluffy buttermilk biscuits. Top with additional minced parsley for garnish. Enjoy.


  • Milk - If you don't have 2% milk on hand you can use whole or 1%. I have never tested this recipe with alternative milks like almond, rice, or coconut. I'm sure it would work, but the flavors would definitely be different.
  • Seasoning - make this recipe as stated. Then if you feel it needs more salt or black pepper add in another ¼ teaspoon. I like to make my sausage gravy with ½ teaspoon Seasoned Salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. The gravy is on the spicier side with the ½ teaspoon of black pepper.
  • Freezing Leftover Sausage Gravy - If you happen to have leftover sausage gravy feel free to freeze it in a freezer baggie. To cook frozen gravy, thaw one day before, reheat in sauce pan and add more milk if necessary.
