Makes about 3 Cups Country Sausage Gravy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
- 4 ounces ground pork sausage, or pork sausage link with casing removed
- 3 green onions, light parts chopped, green parts sliced and reserved
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 cups cold milk
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- pinch of cayenne
Stir in the flour and cook this pasty mixture for 3 minutes. Whisk in the cold milk gradually until combined. The gravy will thicken as it comes up to a simmer. When it simmers, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Before serving, season with salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
Note: the thickness of this gravy is easily adjusted by adding another splash of milk towards the end of the cooking process. For an extra thick version, reduce the milk by 1/2 cup.
