1 Jimmy Dean sausage tube
1/2 cup ap flour
2 cups of milk
2 cups water
1/4 cup cream (optional)
Salt to taste (~2 tsp)
Optional 2 Tbsp bacon grease
Cook sausage in a pan, pot or Dutch oven that is large enough for making gravy (remove sausage fat and replace with bacon grease)
Sprinkle flour directly onto sausage and cook. (This will cook the flour and make a kind of sausage roux)
Pour in milk and water and reduce heat to medium, stir gently
Add salt to taste and set aside once at desired thickness. It requires quite a lot as nothing is preseasoned.
If you want more gravy to sausage add water or more milk. This will affect the thickness so I recommend 1 Tbsp of corn starch whisked in. Whisk liquid into gravy to avoid clumps.
