AWESOME!!! I love sausage gravy with biscuits but I didn't have any sausage so I decided to try your recipe. It is incredible. I think I'll be making this instead from now on. The only think I added was a bit of chopped garlic. Because garlic makes everything better....:)
not at all what I was expecting. Yuck!
Funny, my Dad's been making this for my sister and I since we were kids. Now, I make it for my boys. And they can't get enough of it. I used beef bouillion and cut back a little on the milk and used sour cream, just for a touch of creaminess. I like to add a little worchestershire and a drained can of sliced mushrooms. My whole family loves it and I get to smile and remember my childhood. ;)
Another quick and very easy dinner to whip up. I didn't have 2 lbs of ground beef so I used a combination of beef and ground "sage" sausage. In place of raw chopped onion (kids don't like) I used 1/2 a packet of lipton dried onion mix. I wanted to add more flavor to the gravy so in place of ALL 5 cups of milk I used 2 cups evaporated milk, 1 cup low sodium boxed beef broth, 1 cup of water and 1 cup regular milk. Served over egg noodles and/or biscuits. I had 2 extra kids tonight for dinner and they all wanted seconds!!! Good thing this is one of those dishes you can continue to add liquid and flour to make more servings!!
This was SO good! It was so good infact that I joined this site so I could post a review. I'm from the south and I've ate hamburger gravy since I was little and have been making it for MY family for years, but never with milk ...I love milk gravy, we use that for sausage gravy, chicken fried steak, etc. but never with hamburger meat, it was delicious! I ran out of milk so I used canned evaporated milk instead (one can milk to one can water to make whole milk, but had to use 2 cans to get the 5 cups) and it turned out wonderful, I also added about 4 tablespoons of beefy onion soup mix ( that i make myself) in place of the chicken boullion. Such a great recipe, thank you for posting it. This is now my new hamburger gravy recipe!! :o)
Great recipe. I made it exactly as it is written and it turned out perfectly. Get some White Lily biscuits straight from the frozen foods section, pop them in the oven to bake, and then pour this gravy on top. You won't be disappointed.
My family loved it. They are adding it the monthly planner. Very Very Good.
I also add 1/2 pound of saugage .
My boyfriend loved this! I did add some beefy onion soup mix and it was great. Thanks for sharing!
