Sausage Gravy & Waffles (for those that don’t really like biscuits like me)!!

Sausage and gravy has always been a staple for Saturday or Sunday morning breakfasts in our house but when I think of sausage gravy I think of biscuits.  I don’t really care for biscuits unless they are my husband’s flaky layered biscuits.  And even though these biscuits are delicious I still would rather have something else. This is where the waffles came in to play.  And let me tell you, the waffles just make the gravy that much better. It works!

Waffles just seem to be a popular staple for breakfasts and since they are so easy to make, I made a huge amount and froze for the week for my husband to have for breakfast. I’m pretty sure I won some kind of awesome wife award that week.  No fear, this week he has frozen meals made of ham chunks, scrambled eggs and air fryer potatoes.  I win again!

For the waffles, I simply used a boxed mix. I know I can make my own and I usually do but sometimes I think we need to take help from the store so that’s what happened here.

Making sausage gravy is quite simple. If you have making the roux down, you know the kind without flour lumps, then you’ve got this part down.  There really is nothing worse than taking a bite of sausage gravy and eating a big lump of uncooked flour.

Sausage Gravy & Waffles (for those that don't really like biscuits like me)!!
  1. Begin by placing skillet on medium heat. Once hot add pork sausage and break with spatula or something like a mix 'n chop (Pampered Chef). Allow pork to brown until fully cooked.
  2. Right to the pan with grease (if more than 3 TBS, remove excess) and sausage, add in flour and whisk together to make a roux. Cook for 2 minutes to get rid of raw flour taste.
  3. Slowly stir in milk whisking the entire time. Allow for the gravy to thicken with sausage. You may need to add more milk depending on the thickness you desire.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and paprika and bubble for another minute. After adding the amounts, taste to make sure it has the desired taste you'd like. If not, add more salt and pepper and taste again.
  5. Serve over waffles.
