1 (1 lb. pkg.)  Pork breakfast sausage, I used Tennessee Pride MILD

1/4 cup Butter

1/4  cup All-purpose Flour

3 1/2 – 4 cups whole Milk

1/2 tsp. Black pepper

1/2 – 3/4 tsp. Salt, to taste

1/2 tsp. Accent seasoning

On medium high heat, brown the sausage in a large skillet, breaking large pieces and crumbling as the meat cooks.   Once the meat is cooked, add the butter and cook until melted through…..

Once the butter has completely melted,  add the flour and stir to combine well.  Allow to cook for about 2 or 3 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low, while stirring the meat and flour mixture, add the milk.  Continue to stir this until gravy thickens.

Add your seasonings, all to taste.  For a spicier gravy add more black pepper.  Stir to combine and bring to a slight boil for about 2 minutes.  If the gravy is too thick, add more milk.
