Country Sausage Gravy Recipe

I’ve been making this country gravy recipe for years now using two of my most favorite breakfast meats as the star ingredients. Likewise if you're looking for a delicious tasting breakfast look no further than country gravy poured on top of some freshly baked buttermilk biscuits. 

Although I use this recipe as one of my go to breakfast favorites this gravy is multipurpose and can be served a number of different ways.  I’ve also had much success pouring this gravy over fried chicken and country fried steak to make an awesome dinner. 

Now back to what I said earlier.  Do you want to know the two breakfast foods that I use to give the gravy some tremendous taste? It’s sausage and bacon. I can’t take credit for developing this recipe.  In fact I learned how to prepare this gravy a few years back from Chef John of Food Wishes.

Watch the short video below to learn the exact tips and techniques Chef John teaches to help people like you and me create masterful dishes.  Also below we’ve provided you the ingredient list for this recipe.
