This delicious and easy Country Sausage Sauce is a staple in my house. My mom made it for me and my sisters growing up and now I make it for my kids! Comfort food doesn’t get better than this!
- 1 pound Chopped breakfast sausage (I used country sausage)
- 3 tablespoons All purpose flour
- 4 cups Whole milk, or more if needed
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- ½ teaspoon Black pepper
Place ground sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up as it cooks. Once sausage is no longer pink, sprinkle with flour. Stir so that the flour coats the sausage and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally so that the raw flour is cooked.
Add the whole milk, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until it has reached the desired thickness. If it gets too thick, you can always add more milk.
Once it begins to thicken, season with salt and pepper to taste. I don’t like to add a lot of salt but I go very heavy on the pepper.
Serve warm over buttermilk biscuits (see my TK recipe box).
