This is a great recipe for the classroom that teaches students how to thicken the sausage gravy using flour and it's really hard to mess up. Students gain basic skills and a little confidence in the kitchen. This would be a great recipe for homeschool life skills too.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do and I hope you weren't too bored with all the FCS teacher suggestions. I know I would have loved the advice when I began my teaching career so I thought I would pass along.
1 lb. of your favorite sausage (I use Bob Evans original)
3 Tbsp. flour
Salt & pepper to taste
1. Crumble and cook sausage in skillet until browned.
2. If lots of excess grease remains in the skillet, you may need to drain off some grease at this point. I never have to drain any excess grease when using Bob Evans sausage. It gives just the right amount, but a less expensive sausage may leave more grease than you want. Sprinkle 3 Tbsp. flour over the sausage and remaining grease in the skillet. Stir to let the flour absorb the grease.
3. Next, pour milk over the sausage mixture until the sausage is almost covered. Continue to stir and cook at a medium heat until thickened.
4. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over freshly baked split biscuits.
