Recipe Tips

I prefer to use spicy pig sausage and believe me, I don’t take heat well, so it’s not hot at all. I’ve tried it with both sage sausage and ordinary mild sausage. The spicy pig sausage adds just enough spice to enhance flavor without making you want to sip a glass of milk to calm the flames.

I know some of you love it spicy. If you do, definitely add the red pepper flakes (but they are optional.)

  • Try my butter dip biscuits for a fast biscuit recipe to go with this pioneer woman sausage gravy.
  • Whole milk is excellent for this pioneer woman sausage gravy recipe since it thickens it out nicely, but you may use whichever milk you have on hand. However, if you are going to work on producing the tastiest gravy ever, you must use full-fat milk for the optimum taste.
  • There are no milk, flour, or meat substitutes for this pioneer woman sausage gravy recipe. It is the only way I make it, and any substitutes will change the flavor and texture of this pioneer woman sausage gravy.
  • Before adding the milk, make sure that the flour has been absorbed as much as possible by the fat from the sausage. Do not pour in all of the milk at once. Stir it in slowly. This helps to prevent lumps from forming, resulting in a smooth gravy.

FAQ Section

What Can You Use Instead Of Sausage In This Pioneer Woman Sausage Gravy Recipe?

Consider increasing the onion and caramelizing it to help enhance flavor. You may also use turkey sausage or make our biscuits with turkey sausage gravy.

The dairy in white gravy gives it creaminess, taste, and thickness. To be a real white gravy, it must be made with milk (or a milk replacement) rather than water.
