Sausage Gravy Over Biscuits

I love sausage gravy and biscuits. I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned before, but I love gravy or sauces. Turkey gravy, beef gravy, au jus, mushroom gravy, salad dressing, Indian sauces, the mysterious space Swiss Chalet sauce, etc.  If I can, my plate is generally gravy with a side of meat (or whatever it goes on). My salads drown. I will spoon out the sauce from butter chicken and ignore all the chicken. Having a sausage gravy over a fluffy biscuit more than meets the saucy love.

As Hubby is not a fan of sausage gravy over biscuits, but is a big one of the biscuits (specially with gooseberry jam), I will generally make a one person portion of sausage gravy.

This recipe for sausage gravy is just an estimate as it was just for one person. Feel free to omit the shallots, I add them if I have them, but otherwise the main ingredient is the sausage. I’ve used breakfast sausage, chorizo, farmers sausage, any sausage that has a lot of fat.
