Perfect breakfast recipe for the holidays or weekend at home! Southern Buttermilk Biscuits and Sausage Gravy are easy & completely addictive



1 pound ground pork sausage

2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup all purpose flour

3 cups whole milk

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½1 teaspoon kosher salt

½1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 recipe Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits 


  1. Cook sausage in a large skillet over high heat until completely cooked through and browned. Do not drain the fat.
  2. Reduce to medium-high heat and add the butter, allowing it to melt before sprinkling the flour over the top. Mix and cook for 1 minute to cook out the starchiness from the flour.
  3. While stirring, slowly add the milk. Let it come to a gentle simmer and add the seasonings. Taste and adjust with more salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Serve hot over prepared biscuits.


*if you want a spicier gravy, add a couple dashes of hot pepper flakes to the gravy
