Prep time

Total time
Serves: 4
  • 8 large biscuits (your favorite recipe/brand--there's my recipe in the post)
  • Gravy:
  • 2 boxes (6.4 oz each) brown-and-serve sausage patties or links, defrosted
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 4 tbs unsalted butter
  • ⅛ tsp thyme
  • ⅛ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups milk, divided
  • 1 cup light cream or half-and-half cream
  • ¼ cup flour
  1. Chop sausage so it has a texture like browned ground beef. A couple of pulses in a food processor will give the right texture.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Saute the mushrooms and onion until the onion is translucent. Add the thyme, pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the sausage, stir and heat through.
  5. Place 1 cup of the milk and the flour in a covered container and shake well so there are no lumps. Set aside.
  6. Add the remaining cup of milk and the cream to the sausage mixture in the pan. Heat until almost boiling. Stir in the flour/milk mixture and stir until thickened. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until flour is cooked.
  7. You can thin with more milk if the gravy is too thick.
  8. Cut biscuits and ladle gravy over the biscuits.
