You know those foods that you taste once and then you simply can't get it out of your mind? Rosemary Sausage Gravy is one of those foods. You'll find yourself remembering it (and craving it again!) at all hours of the day. The hints of fragrant rosemary add something unforgettable and after just one bite, many people have told me this immediately became their all-time favorite gravy.

This rich, creamy sausage gravy is the heart of one of my favorite “brinners” - breakfasts that we eat for dinner; although it is always a hit for breakfast as well. Sometimes we dunk toast sticks into the gravy or pour the gravy over hot biscuits; it's also heavenly over hash browns with an egg on top.

This is a hearty, cold-weather meal that is a hit with everyone who tastes it. I'll even admit that I've been known to eat this gravy with a spoon, it really is that good.

COOK’S NOTE: Season the gravy lightly with salt and then taste it, adding more salt, 1/4 or a 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until the gravy tastes right. The amount of salt you need depends on the type of sausage that you use. Some breakfast sausages are heavily seasoned with salt and pepper and others are very lightly salted. Gravy requires a good bit of salt to bring out all of the flavor. Classic breakfast sausage should require about 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the “all natural” sausage varieties I’ve used with this recipe require about 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt.

Rosemary Sausage Gravy
Yield: 6-8 servings

1 pound mild breakfast sausage
1/3 cup all purpose or brown rice flour
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 - 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, about 2 teaspoons chopped

In a large skillet, over medium high heat, cook the sausage, crumbling the meat as it browns. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and stir to coat. Add the milk, salt, and pepper. Stir while bringing to a simmer and continue cooking for about 5 minutes while the gravy thickens.

Add the rosemary. Stir and taste the gravy, adjust salt and pepper as desired. Remove from the heat and serve immediately over warm biscuits. Enjoy!
