Sausage Gravy

Sausage Gravy

Joe is a huge breakfast lover…I honestly think that is his favorite meal. As is lunch. And dinner also. He (and all of us in our house) loves food! I myself am not a breakfast person. I usually skip it altogether. I know it’s not the best way to fuel your body after a nights’ sleep, but I am just not hungry first thing in the morning. Give me my cup of coffee and this girl is good…to…go. One of his most favorite breakfasts ever is breakfast burritos (recipe coming soon) smothered with sausage gravy. Don’t get me wrong, I love burrito-anything, just not in the morning. He has been making this recipe for all of the years we have been married, but sadly for him not often enough I’m afraid. He’s been eager to share this fabulously delicious recipe with you all and finally here it is. It is the best I have ever had.

On one of his many, many work-related trips, he indulged in his beloved breakfast favorite, sausage gravy and biscuits. To his dismay, the place he would normally go to when I am not with him seemed to have completely lost its “homemade” taste. It was average, at best. So began his idea to get his famous (it is in our house anyways) recipe on the blog. I promise, this will not disappoint and, truth be told, as long as we are bearing our souls here, I may have even eaten it by the spoonfuls on occasion (not for breakfast however). It’s loaded with thick, creamy peppery deliciousness with a tiny kick of spice from the sausage (you can substitute regular pork breakfast sausage, rather than spicy). Pour that on homemade biscuits (also coming soon!) and your taste buds with be forever grateful that you blessed them with such yumminess.

Sláinte!
