How to Make Sausage Gravy:

Ingredients Notes:

  • The Sausage: Nathan uses Jimmy Dean bulk Pork Italian sausage. Any bulk Italian sausage or your favorite breakfast sausage will work.
  • Chipotle seasoning adds LOTs of great flavor to this recipe. Be careful if you are choosing a different sausage than mild italian. The flavors may blend differently.
  • Fresh chopped garlic is a better choice than garlic powder. You’ll enjoy the texture and increased flavor of the garlic bits in the gravy.
  • Green onions are a wonderful addition to this at serving. Little power bites of onion are just great over the top of the gravy.
