Sausage gravy is one of those super comforting, super delicious, and super easy dishes that I’ll make for a splurge dinner once in a while, and definitely for brunch when guests come over. You can totally make this lighter by using turkey sausage, too. Pile this spicy sage sausage gravy onto biscuits, chicken fried steak, a green salad… oh wait, maybe not that last one.
You’ll be tempted to put it on everything, though.
This version (based on this recipe from AllRecipes) is a classic. I’ve added some spice and some sage to give it a little more oomph. You can add more spice to your taste, though the sage can get overwhelming if you add much more than I’ve recommended. Other spices taste great too, like thyme and rosemary.
We know the love is real with some people:
