You will love how simple this is to make.


– breakfast sausage – unsalted butter – all-purpose flour – whole milk

Add the sausage to a large frying or cast-iron pan over low to medium heat to help lightly brown and render the fat.

Continually stir the sausage to help break it up into smaller bitesize pieces until browned and cooked throughout. This takes about 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove the sausage and set it to the side on a plate. Add the butter to the pan and wait for it to melt over low to medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour until combed to form a roux.

Next, pour in the milk while whisking to combine the roux with the milk, and turn the heat to high to bring the mixture to a boil. It should become very thick, like an alfredo sauce.

Turn the heat down to low and cook while occasionally whisking until the starch flour taste is gone, which takes 4 to 5 minutes.
