Sausage Gravy over Biscuits

My son heads off for his first year of college at the end of this week. He will be accompanied by his next older sister at the same school, but this will be her senior year. So I am planning on having their favorite meals for dinner this week. This is probably one of my son’s favorite meals. It doesn’t necessarily seem like a meal to serve in the heat of summer, but oh well. In fact, we finally had some rain last night and “cold” front moved in, so the temps shouldn’t get much above 80 degrees today.  So in his honor, I’m making Sausage Gravy & Biscuits. But I’m not making the biscuits from scratch. Meijer had a sale on Grands biscuits this week…..I’m cheating, I know. I don’t care either. LOL                      


1 pound pork sausage (the breakfast kind)
4 tbsp. flour
3 cups milk (more or less)
1/4 tsp. pepper (more or less)
1/8 tsp. salt

Crumble pork into hot skillet and cook until done. Drain off all but 2 tbsp. fat. Whisk flour into fat in skillet until well blended, cooking 1 minute. Gradually add the milk;  bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low.  Add pepper, salt and crumbled sausage; simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring  occasionally. Serve on split biscuits. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
