Recipe FAQs

Can I freeze sausage gravy?

The gravy isn't the best to be frozen and thawed due to the dairy in the recipe. You will find it can curdle a bit once you thaw it out and need to be reheated.
However, you can certainly save it in the refrigerator and reheat it. I use these reusable freezer-safe meal prep containers that work great for storing food in the refrigerator or freezer.

How to thicken sausage gravy?

The flour mixture you stir in once the sausage is cooked is what thickens your gravy.
If you want it thicker allow it to cook a bit on the sauté mode and it will cook down more and thicken as you keep it going. Stir often or it will burn.

Can you make sausage gravy with water instead of milk?

If you do not want to use milk you will find that water can work but it will change the flavor quite a bit. Making it blander. I recommend using half water and half chicken stock.

  • Can my cat eat Sausage Gravy? Although cats are obligate carnivores and love all kinds of meat it's not really recommended that you give sausage to your cat. Processed meat such as sausage is not safe for cats. This is because they contain salt, sulfites, and nitrate, which are hard for a cat to digest.
