Recipe by Chef John
"This is a beautiful example of classic, very old-school American country cooking. There are a lot of variations, and this is my favorite. This goes on fried chicken, country-fried steak, and biscuits."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was excellent over Chef John's buttermilk biscuits! I already have plans to use this over chicken fried steak too! So delicious! Thanks for sharing Chef John!
I'm from Mississippi, and as we say here in the deep south "Honey hush! This is so good it will make you want to slap your grandma.;)
THIS is exactly what I was looking for! There is a dive bar down the road from my home that serves the BEST biscuits & gravy for $4.00 a plate & this comes close to that :) The only way it could be better is if I was having this made & served for me with a Bloody Mary to wash it down....yup, I'm from Wisconsin!
Chef John all I have to say is...Yummmmmmmmm. Though I'm out of bacon at the moment *cries* I put extra sausage crumbles in the gravy and man is it good. Tastes almost like how mom used to make gravy, I may end up using the gravy part of this recipe to make tuna gravy or even chip beef and gravy! *squees* :D
You had me @ "cook sausage and bacon in the hot butter" How about putting the cayenne in the gravy and maybe some paprika on top for garnish?
Thank you, this is wonderful. I have been using packets for years, not anymore. I used this as a base recipe for the gravy. Can't wait to make it the way it reads.
I made this for my biscuits, I made some changes though. I used Johnsonville Italian sausage (mild), seasoned with 1/2 tsp chilli powder. I left out the onion and cayenne pepper and bacon. My sons don't like onions. They said this was excelent and I agree.I have never made country gravy before. I will use this again.
This was the first time I ever used Bacon in my Sausage Gravy and it was AWESOME!!!! I left out the onions drained the fat and added 3 extra tablespoons of Wanna Be Butter in it's place. I also omitted the Cayenne Pepper and added a healthy amount of Cajun Seasoning instead... The only word that comes to mind for this recipe is... "AWESOME"!!!!
