As I discussed in this post for Flying Biscuits, I don’t have much of a knack for making biscuits. That southern gene unfortunately is nowhere to be found in my gene pool. But still I try. And every now and then I come up with some that I’m not afraid to serve.

But southern sausage gravy? It’s an easy, full-proof recipe. And it’s so thick, creamy, and full of flavor. It can even cover up substandard biscuits.

This recipe makes a thick gravy and it tends to thicken even more as it sits. If you want it a little thinner, just add in some extra milk.
