What is Sausage Gravy?
Sausage gravy is a popular Southern dish traditionally served at breakfast however this hearty dish can also be enjoyed for brunch or dinner. It's a rich and creamy gravy made with ground sausage and milk that has been thickened with a roux (a mixture of flour and fat drippings). We've added some carrots, celery, and onions to our version of this classic recipe as it provides some additional colors, textures, and flavors to the meaty sauce. We figured an extra veggie or two never hurt, and they taste so good when combined with the savory sausage and creamy gravy.
Tips for the best Sausage Gravy?
- Use a sausage that is savory and flavorful - avoid using anything too lean as you need the fat drippings to help form a good roux with the flour
- Mix the flour well with the sausage drippings and other ingredients to form a good roux- it will give the gravy its rich and creamy consistency
- Season the gravy with salt and black pepper- only simple seasonings are required for this recipe as most of savory flavor will come from the sausage, however, the gravy should have a distinct undertone of black pepper
- Pressure cook the ingredients together for a few minutes to help infuse all the delicious flavors into the gravy
What goes with Sausage Gravy?
Sausage gravy is typically served over warm buttery biscuits but this rich and savory dish also goes well other popular breakfast items like toast, eggs, grits, and hashbrowns. If serving for dinner, it can also be enjoyed over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes. Going low-carb? Skip the biscuits- this gravy is so delicious it's a meal in itself, and this savory sausage and veggie sauce can be enjoyed on its own.
What if I don't have an Instant Pot?
We used the Instant Pot Duo Crisp to make this recipe as its a multi-functional One-Pot device that can bake the biscuits, and saute and pressure cook the sausage gravy. We like using this One-Pot cooker since we can make everything using just the one-pot which is always a big bonus when it comes to clean-up. We also like to use the Instant Pot to pressure cook the gravy for a few minutes to help infuse all the delicious flavors together into the gravy. It's also great to serve the sausage gravy right from the pot. Just set it on the "Keep Warm" function so it stays perfectly warm and everyone can serve themselves. If you don't have an Instant Pot Duo Crisp, you can also use any pressure cooker or Instant Pot compatible with an Air Fryer Lid to achieve the same results.
If you don't have a One-pot device you can also make this recipe using a conventional oven and stovetop. Simply bake the biscuits on a sheet pan in the oven at 350ºF for 12 minutes. The sausage gravy can be made in a saute pan on your stovetop. Follow the same directions but instead of pressure cooking, allow the gravy to simmer on medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until it thickens to desired consistency.
- We used food-grade silicone Egg Bite Molds to make the biscuits as we like this durable and versatile accessory that can be used in any 5/6 or 8QT pressure cooker.
- This recipe was made using an Instant Pot Duo, a multi-use programmable cooker that can pressure cook, saute, slow cook, steam, sous vide, air fry, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate.
- If you don't have the bake function, you can make this recipe with any Instant Pot, compatible with an Air Fryer Lid
