Sausage Gravy

My hubby LOVES biscuits and gravy.  It’s a very filling breakfast, and I love to make it for him when he’s had a hard week or is doing a lot of work that day.  And it doesn’t hurt that the girls gobble it up too!

1 lb. Italian sausage (we like mild-our butcher has a good one with lots of fennel seed)
6 T butter or margarine
1/3 c flour
3 c milk

Brown sausage in skillet.
Add the butter, and melt.  (Mine is really dry, if yours is greasy, either pour off the grease or use that instead of the butter)
Stir in the flour, cook for about 1 minute to cook out the raw flour flavor.
Now, whisk in the milk and cook over medium heat, letting it get thicker as it cooks.  If it has thickened up too much and gotten too thick, just whisk in more milk.
