“I use the lean Jimmy Deans Sausage and don't even have to drain away any grease. This is my own creation. Very easy and so delicious.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium size saucepan sauté margarine, onions, celery and dash of salt for 5 minutes.
  2. Add sausage and continue to cook until the sausage is fully cooked.
  3. Turn heat down and simmer another 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in flour and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. The bottom of the pan will be brown with bits of stuck on meat and flour.
  6. The darker the crumbs stuck to the bottom, the more golden brown the gravy will be.
  7. Remove pan from heat and stir in milk, cream and cheese slices.
  8. Stir until you can not feel anything stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  9. Place back on low heat and bring to a simmer.
  10. The gravy will thicken as it cooks and may need a little extra milk if it is thicker than you like it.
  11. Simmer for 10 minutes or longer, being sure to stir often.
  12. Taste for seasonings, add salt and pepper if desired.
  13. Normally I don't add any as the sausage flavors the gravy just right.
  14. Instructions for Biscuits:Mix milk and lemon juice.
  15. Mix cheese with Bisquick, sugar and garlic salt.
  16. With a fork, stir in milk just until mixed.
  17. Biscuits can be rolled out and cut or just dropped by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
  18. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  19. After removing them from the oven, brush with melted margarine/butter if desired.
