  • 1/2 lb. Ground Sausage I always use Jimmy Dean Original Breakfast sausage in the roll.
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 4 tbsp. All Purpose Flour
  • 2.5 cups Milk Option to replace 1/2 cup of the milk with heavy cream. Use whole or 2% milk. Any less fat and the gravy won't be creamy.
  • 1.5 tsp. Black Pepper Course Ground


  1. Brown Sausage until all fat is rendered. This will take about 10 minutes at medium high heat.

  2. Add in the butter and allow it to melt completely. It should be completely melted and foamy.

  3. To the butter and sausage add the 4 tbsp. of flour. Stir to cook out flour about 1 minute.

  4. When the flour is mixed evenly with the butter (it will look pasty, see photos) add in 1 cup of milk. Mixture will thicken quickly. This is a good time to cut your heat back a bit. I usually reduce it to low.

  5. As soon as it's super thick add in the 2nd cup of milk.

  6. Stir really well and add remaining 1/2 cup of milk (optional replace the last 1/2 cup of milk with heavy cream). Add in the 1.5 tsp. of black pepper and stir. If you're sensitive to pepper, add it to your tastes.
