  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon minced fresh sage, optional
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Homemade Biscuits (or store-bought biscuits)


  • In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink. Break up any big pieces of sausage with the spoon. Don't drain the grease off of the sausage.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the sausage and stir until the sausage absorbs the flour. Pour in the milk, stirring constantly.
  • Cook the gravy, stirring frequently, until it thickens, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add maple syrup and sage, if using. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve the gravy over warm biscuits.


If the gravy is too thick, you can add 1/2 cup more milk to get it to your desired consistency.
