I absolutely love comfort food. It's one of those genres of food that just always sounds like a good idea, and never lets you down. Before moving to Long Island, my husband and I lived in Brooklyn, and had some of the best restaurants in our grasp. We regularly visited an establishment that was a hole in the wall style diner but served incredible food. Sadly, they closed down, but they were the very first place I had experienced the deliciousness of biscuits and gravy. Why had I never had this before?! The buttery, flaky biscuit drenched in hearty, rich cream sauce topped with crumbled sausage and scrambled eggs. I mean, this is what dreams are made of (In my opinion). I love sausage gravy so much after visiting this place numerous times, I knew that I eventually needed to try making it on my own. When I first made it, though, the cream curdled and the flour I used was not correct. It made me so upset that I could not make this sausage gravy the way it tasted in the restaurant. A few weeks ago, I had some ground sausage in my freezer thanks to Thrive Market's amazing line of frozen meats (affiliate link), and decided to go for it again. I am SO glad I did. It's perfection.
When I say this sausage gravy is the most decadent and rich breakfast recipe you'll ever make, I am not kidding. It's so good, and it's literally perfect for a holiday brunch. You can make an entire batch of sausage gravy, bake up some Pillsbury biscuits, scramble or fry a few eggs, and you've got a crowd-pleasing brunch item for an entire family. I can't say enough about this sausage gravy recipe, you're just going to have to make this one yourself.
I promise this sausage gravy recipe is utter perfection. If you have extra gravy (somehow), this freezes well too, just remember to thaw in the fridge the night before. As always, when you make this recipe, please leave some love in the comments below, and share far and wide! Here's to a beautiful holiday season my friends :)
