'Tis the Season for Breakfast - Sausage Gravy

These last two days of February (can it be so?!?) are dedicated to biscuits and gravy.  Ohhh how I love biscuits and gravy!  The biscuits can be anything - Grands flaky buttery biscuits, Jiffy mix biscuits or any biscuit mix you like.  The gravy, now that’s another thing all together.  Today’s gravy is sausage gravy, recipe given to me by my Sissy, and is one of my very favorites!
Sausage Gravy
1 pound regular Jimmy Dean (or whatever brand) sausage, browned and drained
2-3 tablespoons butter
Black pepper
2-3 cups milk*
Put it right back in the same warm pan once you’ve drained it.  Drop in butter and let melt all over the sausage.  Then sprinkle in flour.  Approximately 1/3 cup or until sausage is well coated.
Let cook for 1-2 minutes.  Add milk.  Add a liberal amount of cracked black pepper (to your taste).  
*Like alot of sausage in your gravy? Go shy on the milk.  Sparse sausage?  Go heavy on the milk.  Bring to a slow boil.  Once it boils, take off heat and let sit for a few minutes.  It should now thicken up.
Split biscuit and smother with sausage gravy.
