Food Network's white sausage gravy recipe is a popular, highly-rated recipe for homemade white gravy. This easy recipe uses only a few simple ingredients and cooks in less than 15 minutes.
To prepare the gravy, heat a large cast-iron skillet on medium to high heat. Add 12 ounces of pork sausage to the heated skillet, and cook until well-browned and completely cooked. Break the sausage up with a wooden spoon as it cooks, and stir occasionally. The pork sausage takes approximately seven minutes to completely cook. When done, remove the sausage with a slotted spoon, and set aside in a bowl.
Leave the rendered pork fat in the skillet. After removing the sausage, whisk 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour into the skillet, and cook for one minute. Continue to stir the mixture with a whisk as it cooks. After the flour mixture is cooked, whisk in 2 cups of milk, and bring the skillet to a boil.
Once the gravy reaches a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for two minutes. Add the cooked sausage to the gravy, and season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately after cooking. Food Network suggests serving this homemade white gravy over biscuits.
