Gravy


Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 lb of your favorite sausage (I use Neese's country Sausage (hot) or  Tennessee Pride)
1/4 c. all purpose flour
Approximately 2 c. milk (2%)
1 tbsp. cornstarch (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Brown 1 lb of your favorite sausage.
Use a fork to crumble to the desired size.
Sprinkle 1/4 c. of all purpose flour over the sausage and blend to get the flour moist with the meat juices. Let it brown some  then gradually add 2% milk, just enough to cover the meat let it simmer to a slight
bubble then add another cup or so, stirring. I use a wooden spoon for this as it keeps the bottom of the pan from getting crusted and burning or sticking to the pan.
Let it cook to the thickness you prefer.
If it's too thin, add a tablespoon of cornstarch to 1/4 c. of water and this will help thicken without changing the flavor.


Making gravy isn't always easy. To get the right thickness, without lumpy flour throughout.

This recipe was given to me by a family friend from Tennessee 40 years ago.

This is kind of tradition around here whenever the family come to visit, this is the first morning breakfast, and the sending home one as well.
