“My mother learned how to make this while we lived in Nashville many years ago, and it is now a family favorite. Good old-fashioned sausage gravy. It's her most requested recipe from family and friends alike. Serve over biscuits or toast.”

This is a great recipe for sausage gravy. I do make mine slightly different though. First, I don't add the bacon grease because I feel mine has more than enough. With the sausage in the pan I will add the flour, then the milk and spices. I also really prefer mine with sage sausage to give it a little more flavor. Maple sausage doesn't taste quite right though.

I made this to go over J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits and it was sooo good. I didn't use the bacon grease, as my sausage was greasy enough. I added a hefty dose of ground black pepper...it gives the gravy such a good flavor!! Mind didn't reheat well, so next time we'll either eat it all or have to make a smaller batch. Thanks Rene.

It seems almost everyone changes this recipe to fit their own taste and I'm no exception... I have made this exactly as written and also with a few changes. First I'll review this without changes. The first thing I noticed was that this does not make eight servings. If you are making this for biscuits and gravey, the recipe will makes only two servings. I make this for myself using half the recipe and gobble it up myself! Second, it is just a tad bland but can easily be fixed by starting with a sausage with more spice. The changes that I've made are to saute some onions with the sausage and added several dashes of warchestershire sause to give it a little more zip. I also add a little of Jonny's Seasoning Salt. When I have no bacon grease, I use butter instead. I grew up in the South and had biscuits and gravy 'most every morning so I consider myself an expert gravy taster and I give this one five stars. :-)
