Zesty Sausage Gravy

This is the easiest and tastiest Sausage Gravy recipe around. That is because it starts with Bob Evan's Zesty Hot Sausage. It does not make the gravy super-hot, but it does have a kick and tons of flavor. Of course, you can use any kind of sausage.
Course: Breakfast


  • 1 pound Bob Evan’s Zesty Hot Sausage
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon gravy master optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking the sausage up in to small pieces as it cooks.
  • When there is no pink left to the sausage add the butter to the skillet and let it melt and stir in.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the sausage. Stir in and cook for about 2 minutes until all the flour is absorbed by the fat.
  • Add half of the milk and whisk until a very thick mixture forms. This will ensure that you do not have lumps in the finished gravy. Once thoroughly combined, add the remainder of the milk, and whisk until thick and smooth.
  • Add the salt, pepper, and gravy master (if using). The gravy master adds a great savory flavor and adds a little color to the gravy, but it is not essential.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. You can adjust the consistency of the gravy by adding a little more milk if you like a thinner gravy or cooking a little longer to thicken.
