Homemade Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

Old fashioned biscuits and gravy recipe – the ultimate breakfast comfort food meal.


  • 1 pound breakfast sausage ground
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 to 4 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • Biscuits


  1. In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and sprinkle on half the flour and stir so that the sausage soaks it all up, continue to sprinkle in the remaining flour and stir for about 1 minute.
  3. Slowly stir in the first 3 cups of milk.
  4. Continue to stir frequently, until it thickens (8-12 minutes).
  5. Sprinkle in salt and pepper(s) and continue cooking until thickened to the desired consistency. If it gets too thick add in more milk, a little at a time.
  6. Taste and adjust the seasoning as desired.
  7. Spoon the gravy over warm biscuits and serve immediately.
