I'll just throw this out there for you....
Sausage gravy and biscuits are BAD FOR YOU.
All the grease from the sausage and then the extra grease that you add to the sausage to make the gravy is certain to start the clogging process of your arteries.
I put so much butter in my biscuits you should have your cardiologist on speed dial.
BUT if you serve fresh fruit or a green smoothie on the side, all is forgiven.
OK, maybe not.

Just don't have this often and you will be OK.
I'm not a doctor.
Don't take me at my word.

All I know is that every once in a blue moon my family (me) wants to have a little badness in our lives.
At least we aren't out committing crimes against the world.
Just our own bodies.
Plus Sausage Gravy reminds me of childhood.
Momma use to make this.
Only she made it with Owens Hot Sausage, as this is the ONLY sausage my Daddy liked.
If I could find Owens I would use Owens.
However I haven't lived anywhere that carries Owens for a long time.
I have to settle for Jimmy Dean.
Don't get me wrong, Jimmy Dean is not bad, he is just not Owen.
The Recipe:
Kind of- all measurements are APPROXIMATE.  You will need to judge for yourself...add a little more of this and a little more of that per your liking...  Yes, this is one of THOSE types of recipes.  Good luck.

1 package Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage (use Owens if you can find it)
4 TBL vegetable oil
3 TBL flour
1 1/2-2 1/2 cups of milk

Cook sausage over medium heat crumbling like so until done.
When sausage is completely cooked move all sausage to the outer edges of the pan.
Add vegetable oil - let it get nice and hot (medium-high heat)
Add flour
With a whisk combine flour and oil until no lumps appear.
Add milk slowly 1/2 a cup at a time whisking with each addition. 
Continue adding milk until the gravy is the consistency you like.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Easy as that.  Really.
I promise.
Give it a try.
Pour sausage gravy over fresh baked biscuits.
And eat salads for the rest of the week to even things out.

If that is bad, then we are downright delinquents in our home. The once in a blue moon that we have sausage gravy and biscuits, we add crumbled bacon to the gravy. It's a pork fat thing.
