Sausage Gravy

Use a packaged gravy mix to make a great gravy.


  • 1 packet Sausage Gravy Mix McCormick's or Pioneer brand
  • 1 lb. package Jimmy Dean Sausage
  • 2 - 3 cups Milk
  • 1-2 tsp. Garlic Powder to start with, then add more if needed.


Start by crumbling your sausage into a frying pan that has been turned to medium heat. Stir and brown until sausage is fully cooked and browned.
If you do not have enough grease from the sausage, you can add a tablespoon of bacon grease or butter to the sausage.
Take the packaged sausage gravy mix and sprinkle it onto the sausage and mix in. Just mix it around.
Add in a little milk to start with and keep adding until you have all your milk in the frying pan, mixing continually as you add the milk.
Sprinkle garlic powder over your gravy and mix in. Add in more salt & pepper if needed. Wait for a few minutes until your gravy is thickened. If your gravy is too runny or thin, you can take some flour and add a little water to it until you have a runny paste-like consistency. Pour into your hot gravy mixture, stirring and let it come up to boil again and then turn down the heat. It should thicken pretty fast. If the gravy is too thick, just add more milk.
The packaged gravy mix says to add water. DON'T. Milk makes it richer and creamy. Could use half and half for a very extra decadent gravy!
