In a skillet, begin cooking a pound or so of your favorite bulk breakfast sausage. I’m using some of the moose sausage we had our butcher put together for us. Cook this over medium heat, breaking apart the bits of meat as you go. Cook this, stirring often until it is completely cooked through.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of flour over the top of the meat, stirring it all in.

Stir in 3 cups of milk. I always use whole milk, but you can use 2% if that is what you have at home.

Continue to cook this over medium heat, stirring continually until it comes to a gentle boil. Let it bubble for 1 minute, and remove it from the heat. Add a little black pepper if you like. That is it!

The gravy will thicken a little more as it cools, but that is all it takes to make this classic breakfast gravy.

Enjoy!
