Biscuits and Garlicy Sausage Gravy

Early Mornin Seahawks Playoff Game.....

A bunch of hungry men at my house.....

What to feed them.....?

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy!!

The key to good sausage gravy is patience.....

Here is what you will need:
  • 1 lb. pork breakfast sausage - my favorite is NY Sausage Co.
  • 1/2 onion - diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • olive oil - if/as needed
  • 2-4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1-2 cups milk, or more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary, ground
  • salt and LOTS of fresh ground pepper to taste
  • biscuits - homemade or store bought
Bake biscuits - I used Pillsbury just to make it easy, but you can make your own, or buy them from a bakery if you'd like.

Cook the sausage and diced onions on medium heat, breaking into smaller pieces. Once the they are cooked through, add in 1/4 cup flour, and a little olive oil if needed - (Hey, noone said this was healthy!!) and stir well to coat. Brown on medium heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring every couple minutes.

Once the sausage is well browned and crispy, add in the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly so you do not burn the garlic. 

Then, slowly add in the milk, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Continue stirring and adding in milk every couple of minutes until the gravy comes to just a little thinner than the right consistency. It will continue to thicken as it cooks. (We all know what consistency gravy should be, right??)

Add in the Worcestershire sauce, sage, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper - stir well.

Let this cook on med-low heat for 15-20 minutes, adding in a little more milk occasionally as needed.

Serve over hot biscuits with your favorite breakfast fixins; eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, Coffee with Kaluah and/or Irish Cream, Bloody Mary's and Man-Mosas... (just like a Mimosa, only served in a pint glass, so they don't feel so dainty!!)

My guys were in 7th heaven... now if the Seahawks could just win this game... they's be as happy with the football as they were with the food!
