What Sausage Is Best For This Recipe?

I recommend a ground breakfast sausage for this recipe, typically a mild or medium-spiced pork sausage. It adds flavor and richness to the gravy without overpowering it. For fun, and the true recipe from scratch, we decided to make our breakfast sausage starting with grinding the pork. We used This Recipe to make our homemade sausage. However, you can use any breakfast sausage you wish.

This is our homemade breakfast sausage, and we crumbled it up, then browned it before moving on to the next step.

What Wheat Variety Is Recommended For Making Sausage Gravy?

Really any wheat variety will work for this recipe, even if you have some leftover from milling flour for another recipe. I chose to use soft white wheat today, mainly because I was already milling soft white wheat for the biscuits. So, I was able to just mill extra for this sausage gravy recipe. But, I have used Einkorn, hard white, and even a blend of miscellaneous extra flours all with great success.

So, once the sausage is browned, you can add the flour and then stir. Keep stirring so it doesn’t burn to the bottom before you pour in the milk.

Can I Make This Sausage Gravy With Sourdough Discard?

Yes! This sausage gravy can be made with sourdough starter as well! Just replace the fresh milled flour with 1/2 cup of sourdough discard (115g), then decrease the milk by about 1 cup, so you will only need about 3 cups whole milk (720g) when using sourdough discard in the gravy.

Our gravy might look a bit on the lighter side, but this is because we made our own sausage from scratch, and used a lean white meat pork loin to make it.
