Homestyle Venison Sausage Gravy

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 pound breakfast sausage hot or mild
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter optional
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 to 4 cups whole milk more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper more to taste


  1. Brown the sausage in a large skillet, over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Reduce the heat to medium-low. If your sausage is very lean add 1-2 tablespoons of butter to the pan.
  2. Sprinkle on half the flour over the sausage and stir well so that the sausage soaks it all up. Add the rest of the flower slowly, while stirring, until it is all incorporated. Cook it for another minute or so, until browned again.
  3. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly. A sauce should form. Stir in the salt and pepper. Continue to cook, until it thickens, about 8 to 10 minutes. When done the sauce should be very thick and creamy.
  4. Adjust seasonings and serve immediately.
