The weekend is almost here and I don’t know about you, but we like to plan ahead for a leisurely breakfast. This is one of our favorite breakfast items and it takes so little time to prepare.
8 ounces sausage
1/4 cup flour, all purpose
2 cups milk, regular or 2 %
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
1. Heat a 10 inch skillet over medium-high heat and brown the sausage until it’s crumbly and done.
2. Remove the sausage from the pan and discard all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Add the flour to the drippings, stirring constantly until thoroughly mixed. Gradually whisk in the milk stirring constantly. This will take approximately 5 minutes. Return the sausage to the pan, add the salt and pepper and stir to heat thoroughly.
Serve this over freshly baked biscuits, toast, or an English muffin.
