  • 12 ounces Pork Sausage casings removed – or use bulk sausage
  • 1 Small Onion finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Sage finely chopped (about 4-5 leaves)
  • ¼ teaspoon Paprika
  • Dash Cayenne Pepper optional
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • 2 cups Half & Half
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth plus extra to loosen the gravy if needed
  • pinch Salt if needed
  • pinch Fresh Black Pepper


  • Heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat, add the sausage. Cook the sausage for 5 minutes, while stirring and breaking up any large pieces with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
  • Add the onions to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the sage, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using). Stir to mix well.
  • Add the flour to the sausage mixture, stirring as you add it in. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Slowly add the half & half while stirring the sausage mixture until combined. Continue cooking for approximately 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Slowly add the chicken broth and continue stirring. When the gravy begins to simmer, lower the heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Taste the sausage gravy and add salt, if needed, and pepper, stir.
  • Serve the sausage gravy over warm biscuits.



If the gravy is too thick, add more chicken broth, a couple of tablespoons at a time, while stirring until it reaches the desired consistency. If you have leftovers, add a little bit of chicken broth to reheat and the gravy will loosen up.
We used refrigerated canned biscuits to serve.
