One of my family’s favorite Sunday breakfast dishes is some good old country sausage gravy and biscuits. Yum Yum! It’s so easy to make and I love that I only dirty one pan for a complete breakfast and the ingredient list is minimal.

Black Peppered Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
In the past, I didn’t make this recipe that often and my husband would order this when we went out to breakfast. Unfortunately he was disappointed with the restuarant’s version of country sausage gravy and biscuits because it didn’t taste as good, and it wasn’t as chunky with sausage bits as mine. Naturally this makes me happy that he can’t find good sausage gravy like mine anywhere else.
First you have to decide if you want to make the biscuits from scratch or if you want to just buy the Pillsbury Biscuit mix, which I always opt for. If you prefer to make the biscuits from scratch there are tons of recipes out there but it will add about 20 minutes to your prep time.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees or whatever your premade biscuit package instructs.
Next line your cookie sheet with some parchment paper-no clean up this way, and place your biscuits on pan. Place in oven when preheated.
Using your deep fry pan place on stove with medium heat. Add sausage to pan and break up the mixture with wooden spoon. Cook sausage until all bits and pieces are well cooked and browned.
Next add in the black pepper and cook 1-2 minutes. Try to use coarse not fine pepper, the chunks make it taste better!
Add flour to sausage one tablespoon at a time, making sure that after each tablespoon the flour is well incorporated into the sausage. Adding the flour slowly and mixing it in well will ensure your gravy isn’t floury tasting.
Next add in the milk, stirring well. At this time you can add the 2 tablespoons of butter. Lower the heat to a medium-low setting making sure that while the milk is thickening you are stirring at 2-3 minute intervals. The gravy should be thickened within 10 minutes.
Check on your biscuits, they should be done now. I like to cut and open the biscuits and then pure that delicious sausage gravy over top!
