To make sausage gravy, use 1 pound breakfast sausage, hot or mild, along with all-purpose flour and whole milk. Infuse with seasoned salt and freshly ground black pepper, and serve with warm biscuits. Preparation time is 25 minutes and cook time is 20 minutes. The recipe yields 12 servings.
Using your hands, rip the sausage into small pieces, and place the pieces in a single layer in a large heavy skillet. Cook the sausage over medium-high heat until it browns, and adjust the heat to medium-low. Slowly add 1/3 cup all-purpose flour a little bit at a time. As the sausage soaks up the flour, pour more into the skillet. Once the flour dissolves, cook for an additional minute, stirring as you mix in 3 to 4 cups whole milk.
Add 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt and 2 teaspoons ground black pepper; season with additional pepper if desired. Keep cooking and stirring for approximately 10 to 12 minutes until the gravy grows thick. If the gravy becomes too thick in consistency, add an additional 1/2 cup milk or more. Once cooked, taste the gravy and include more seasonings if necessary. Pour the sausage gravy over the warm biscuits and serve at once.
