Old Thyme Southern Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Thyme is the simple secret 🙂

Southern simplicity at its finest. Serve with eggs over easy, grits or hash browns and you have one complete down-home style breakfast suited for even the most discriminating Southern Gentleman.


16 ounces Breakfast Sausage—I use Bob Evan’s or Jimmy Dean original. Turkey, Chicken or Soy crumbles may be used.

1/3 cup Flour

1 1/2 cups Milk

1 cup chicken broth

1 small onion; chopped fine

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1 teaspoon fresh thyme

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Salt and Pepper

Your favorite Biscuit Recipe


Brown sausage and onions in skillet until deeply colored and crispy, breaking sausage into pieces. Season with nutmeg, thyme, salt and pepper.

Sprinkle flour onto sausage and onions, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add milk and broth to sausage mixture, stir and bring to a boil, simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Add more milk, if needed. Sprinkle in parsley, season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour gravy over biscuits and serve with rib-stickin’ sides of your choice.
