Sausage Gravy on Toast with Eggs

I am not a fan of most breakfast dishes with the exception of spicy and savory dishes. Whenever I go to a diner or restaurant that specializes in breakfast, I quickly scan the menu for biscuits and sausage gravy.  Now that is one dish that makes me really happy.  Ask me the last time I was at a restaurant to eat breakfast... maybe a decade ago. LOL!  Yes... it's true.  I have mentioned before since I cook a lot we don't go out to eat much and if we do it's for lunch or dinner meals.  So, I have not had biscuits and sausage gravy in a long time. I decided to tackle this dish at home and I cannot believe why I haven't tried it before  This dish is as easy as 1,2,3!  I must admit I did not want to tackle making my own biscuits so I decided thick sliced toasted bread would be a good substitute. My family and I devoured this meal.  We actually ate it for lunch since that's the time of the day I made the dish to take my pictures.  So technically I have yet to make this for breakfast, but since most diners serve breakfast for 24 hours... it's good anytime of the day.

1lb of mild or hot sausage ( I used Johnsonville brand)
1 medium onion finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp of poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1 Tbs of Worcestershire sauce
red chili flakes to taste
2 cups of milk (I used 2%)
salt and a lot of black pepper to taste

Note: If you are not a fan of pork sausage, try substituting ground chicken, turkey or beef.  Just add more poultry seasoning and some fennel seed to give it that sausage flavor.


In a large saute pan, brown sausage with onions and bell pepper.   Then add black pepper, poultry seasoning, nutmeg, red chili flakes.

Then add the flour and cook for a few minutes. Finally add the milk and bring to a simmer.  Allow gravy to thicken.  Taste for seasoning. Adjust seasoning as needed.   In a separate pan fix eggs as you like and toast bread.  Serve Sausage Gravy over toast.  Enjoy.
