Sausage Gravy

1 lb of ground breakfast sausage

 or

Brown and crumble the sausage in a skillet over medium heat.
Healthier alternative:

1 lb of lean ground turkey

3 Tbsp canola oil

½ tsp cayenne pepper

½ tsp sage

¼ tsp oregano

A grating of black pepper

Pour the oil in the skillet and heat. Crumble in the turkey and sprinkle the spices. Brown and crumble the turkey in a skillet over medium heat.

Approx. ¼ cup flour

Approx. 1 cup milk

 

Cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper

Turn up the heat to med-high. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and mix well to absorb the oil. Use a little less flour for the turkey option. Cook for about 1 minute. Add ½ cup milk, stir, cook until for a minute or so until thick and add ¼ cup additional milk, cook and stir. Keep adding milk a bit at a time and continue stirring until the gravy is the desired consistency and does not continue to thicken.If you like it spicy, add a bit more cayenne pepper (careful!). Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with biscuits.
