Sausage gravy is one of those dishes that is so basic you don’t even need a recipe. But it’s also one of those dishes that, in the age of everything being bigger, bolder and more unusual, tends to get lost in the mix – meaning, you aren’t going to see it going viral anytime soon.
The thing is, at my house we whip up homemade sausage gravy at least once a month. I find it simple, soul satisfying, and a great way to start a Sunday. Once you internalize the ingredient measurements, making this becomes second nature.
If you’re trying to think of something to make for brunch (or even dinner) next weekend, head back to the classics. It has been around a long time for a reason. Red velvet cupcakes and deep-fried oatmeal are here today, gone tomorrow. Sausage gravy? It’s not going anywhere any time soon.
