I used turkey sausage and lowfat milk. It wasn't as good as the "real-deal" would have been, I would guess. But was still very good and healthier. Loved using the evaporated milk, as it is so handy and has a richer flavor, IMO, than the lowfat milk we usually use.

This was good and easy, but I still prefer the recipe from Bob Evan's website.

Made a similar recipe once before and it turned out too salty. So for this recipe I used the lowest sodium sausage I could find and did not add any salt. Turned out great. Not salty, at all.

My husband loves sausage gravy! I never make it because of the saturated fat content. Of so many receipes listed I chose this one as no butter or heavy milk. WOW! How delicious! A big hit here. I did add 1/2 tsp. of fresh ground pepper & used a low-fat sausage. I will pass this one on & use again. Thankyou.

This is the real deal! It turned out perfectly, even though I've never made sausage gravy before. Very hearty- a great comfort food.

Perfect every time! I have been making this recipe for about two years for friends and family, there are never left overs!

This is a easy recipe with great turn out. I love going out for breakfast but with 3 small boys I can eat this at home instead. I make no changes at all and it always turns out great.
