Do you know those foods you try once and then just can't get them out of your head? This Sausage sauce It is one of those foods.

You will find yourself remembering (and longing again!) At all hours of the day. The hints of fragrant rosemary add something unforgettable and after a single bite, many people have told me that this immediately became their all-time favorite sauce.

Would you like the secret behind making the best sausage sauce you've ever tasted? It's that little pinch of rosemary. A few years after trying a rosemary sausage sauce at a restaurant, I started adding rosemary to my sauce when I made it.

That little herb addition takes a simple, old-fashioned recipe for biscuits and gravy from being something we enjoy eating to the level of being something I crave regularly.

What to serve with sausage sauce

This rich and creamy sausage sauce recipe is the heart of one of my favorite "tractors": the breakfasts we dine; although this sauce is always a hit for breakfast too. Sometimes we dip toast sticks in the sauce or pour the sauce over hot cookies.

Sausage Sauce is also heavenly on hash browns with an egg on top. My youngest son's favorite breakfast for dinner is this Breakfast Poutine: crispy, hot fries and melted cheese curd topped with sausage sauce and a fried egg. What could not be loved?

Salty waffles

For the past year or two, my favorite way to serve sausage gravy is with salty waffles. My crush on salty waffles started with the ham and cheddar waffles I shared a couple of years ago.

In the time since then, they have become a regular at our breakfast and dinner table and I also keep them in the freezer. If you haven't tried them yet, you're missing them.

Cheddar and chive waffles with sausage sauce are a new favorite breakfast, but this sauce is also delicious compared to classic buttermilk waffles. I'll even admit that I've known how to eat this sauce with a spoon, it really is that good.

How to make sausage sauce

Making a truly excellent sausage sauce is easier than you think. Start with a sausage that you like. I usually use a country or breakfast sausage.

Crumble the sausage when it begins to cook in a large skillet. Once browned, sprinkle with flour and stir well to coat. Add the milk, salt and pepper.

Let the sauce cook and thicken for about five minutes, while stirring frequently. Add rosemary, taste thick sauce, and add additional salt and pepper only if necessary.

Cook an additional minute or two and remove from heat. The sauce will thicken slightly while resting. Serve hot.

Cooking tip: I use this skillet to make this recipe.

Rosemary Sausage Sauce

  1. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, mincing the meat while browning. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage and stir to coat.

  2. Add the milk, salt and pepper. Stir while simmering and continue cooking for about 5 minutes while the sauce thickens.

  3. Add the rosemary. Stir and taste the sauce, adjust the salt and pepper as desired.

  4. Remove from the heat and serve immediately on hot cookies.

How to season the sauce

Season the sauce lightly with salt and then taste it, adding more salt, 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until the sauce tastes good. The amount of salt you need depends on the type of sausage you use.

Some breakfast sausages are heavily seasoned with salt and pepper, and others are slightly salty. The sauce requires a little salt to bring out all the flavor.

The classic breakfast sausage should require approximately 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the "all-natural" sausage varieties I have used with this recipe require approximately 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
