White Gravy and Sausage



Hello everyone, so the other day I posted a recipe on how to make chicken fried steak.  Today I am going to tell you how to make white gravy and sausage.  Dont like sausage you say?  Leave it out then, no one says you have to follow this recipe exactly, if you want to know what I put in mine use this as a guide not a bible.  I just figured it wouldn't be fair to show you all how to make fried chicken without the gravy.  I mean that is like saying white without the out for white out, or Kermit the frog without miss piggy.  They just go together I dont know why but I think its in our constitution or something.  On with the recipe because as some of you know if you give the chance I will blab and blab and still not tell you the recipe for white gravy and sausage.


Ingredients:

1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 pound of regular flavored sausage
2 tablespoons of sausage drippings
2 tablespoons of flour
1 crumbled up chicken bullion cube 
1 pint of heavy cream
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon of granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of black pepper

Instructions:

On a low heat add your extra virgin olive oil and sausage to a large skillet.  You want the heat on low so the sausage will render its juices for the roux, white sauce, gravy, potato, patao, whatever.  Once the sausage is cooked, take it out of the skillet and drain it on a paper towel.  Leave the drippings in the pan, if the sausage rendered more drippings than mine measure out two tablespoons worth.  With the skillet still on low heat add the flour to the sausage drippings.  Whisking the whole time until the flour turns a light brown color or a tan color. Now we add all our seasonings, except the black pepper we are going to save that for last. Just keep whisking. Next gradually add the cream, just do this in stages otherwise you will have clumps.  Whisking the whole time and when the sauce gets thick add a little more cream, until you used the pint.  We are ready for the sausage so add that all in and add whisk in the black pepper, and you are ready to serve this over biscuits or chicken fried steak.  I will post the video to show you step by step on how I made this recipe.  Take care everyone and live laugh and love.
