Southern-Style Sawmill Sausage Gravy


  • 1 (16 ounce) package Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Regular Sausage
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 3 ½ cups whole milk, or more as needed
  • salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Add sausage to a large skillet or heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir with a spatula, breaking apart the sausage until cooked and starting to crisp, 5 to 7 minutes.


  • Step 2

    Add butter, onion powder, and garlic powder; stir until butter is melted.

  • Step 3

    Sprinkle flour over sausage and butter and stir until combined. Reduce heat slightly and cook until thick, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Pour in chicken stock, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer until stock is absorbed and mixture is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in milk until gravy is hot and bubbly.

  • Step 5

    Season to taste with salt and lots of freshly cracked pepper. If gravy becomes too thick, thin out with more milk.
