The question isn't "what are we going to do with the sausage gravy machine," the question is "what aren't we going to do with the sausage gravy machine?"

Excuse my ignorance but what is "sausage gravy"? It seems like the sort of regional "delicacy" found primarily south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

It is a simple gravy usually consisting of the fat drippings from sausage, white flour, milk, and seasonings (often just salt and pepper.) Usually, bits of the sausage are added back in.

It's very close to a classic Béchamel sauce with a different source of fat.

Hard to beat something as simple and delicious and sausage gravy and homemade buttermilk biscuits.

/Poor Northerners just don't know

///Not fat, but will probably die from sausage clogging my arteries.

I wonder if they will run specials similar to the soda fountain- any size cup of gravy for just $.99

You have to understand, its a sauce, not a meal. You put in on top of things, you generally don't eat it by itself.
Yes, many people probably use a bit too much of it (and some eat it by itself), but that is another issue entirely.

Sausage gravy is big here in Pennsylvania too. I guess we're a little closer to the line than the rest of the North though.

There's a place on I-70, about 1/2 way between Columbia, MO and KC, MO. It's a convenience, liquor, fireworks and p0rn store, and it has one of these.

It's because this is Fark. Ask yourself this 1 simple question. Is it a thing? If you answered yes then somebody on here hates it.

I can see buying the biscuits, but the gravy? What is so hard about that part?

It contains less than a stick of butter so there is no way it's a Paula Deen recipe.

Fark you. "Sausage Gravy" could have been a euphemism for something far more disgusting like Spiced Bull Semen. And before you suggest that such a product would never exist I would remind you that brain sandwiches and potted-meat are insanely popular in some regions so the image of Appalachian farmers starting their days off with a hot plate of biscuits soaked in bull jizz isn't exactly inconceivable.

I saw this earlier this morning and immediately put in a request for one of these to the employee relations committee. I can't imagine a greater morale booster than sweet, sweet sausage gravy.

Fair enough. It still sounds fairly gross, but the poutite-like artery clogging goodness kind of gross, not lutefisk kind of gross.

IXI Jim IXI: Dammit...now I'm craving Cracker Barrel.


That's a sentence I never thought I'd hear or read on Fark. You like Crapper Barrel? I thought you were a man of taste.

we eat scrapple in the south as well, and yes, Ive fried that stuff and put it on a sandwich of buttered toast with a folded scrambled egg, and a square of cheeze.

can't say I've ever poured sausage gravy on scrapple however.

but who the hell said cornstarch? no.. its just flour, milk, and sasuage drippings..

and that paula dean recipea is far too complicated. just crumble raw sausage into a cast iron skillet, or what you have. brown and render the the fat out of it.

at this point you can pull the sausage crumbles out and make the gravy or just continue, I usually just continue.
once the sausage is browned and you got some fat in the pan, add a teaspoon or so of of white flour and and stir it into the fat till its pasty. then while stirring, switching from a spoon to a whisk gradually add milk. splash the milk, stir till thickened, add some more.. continue till you have your volume. add cracked black pepper at your leisure.

once you have your gravy made, you can fold the sausage crumbles back in, but like I said, I prefer to leave them in while I'm making the gravy.. I find the flavors meld better.

the same technique works for chipped beef, or... S.O.S... shiat on a shingle if you prefer.. its the same thing once you get down to it.you just add some butter at the beginning and substitute dried beef for the sausage.


sausage gravy is traditionally served on biscuits, while SOS is served on white toast.

yes, I am a southern breakfast cooking muthafarker.. its my favorite thing to cook and explore. my favorite pick up line being "I'd love to cook you breakfast"

someone also mentioned eggs Benedict. I find the worst offense with eggs Benedict is using instant Hollandaise sauce. shiat is not hard to make if you have a blender. all you need to do is separate three eggs, melt a stick of butter. throw the yolks of the eggs into a blender, turn it on at high speed, drizzle in the hot butter as its rolling so the yolks dont temper. to that add in some lemon juice,and a little red pepper and then you have a basic blender Hollandaise sauce suitable for anything you wanna put Hollandaise on. add more red pepper for asparagus or cauliflower.

grits?

grits are easy. if you can find them the ratio is usually like rice. 1 cup grits, two cups water. maybe 2.5 if you want them a bit wetter, but being a good southren boy, I'll go 1 cup, to 2 cups, and .25 of a cup of butter.

I dont usually cotten to sweet or cheese grits unless they're used as a starch at dinner, shrimp, or fried catfish and cheese grits are a wonderful thing, but Ive personaly have never had a use for sugar grits.

I like my grits buttery with salt and pepper, as a side to my breakfast
