  • 1 lb. sage sausage or ground breakfast sausage of your choice
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tsp. Chicago steak seasoning or steak seasoning of your choice
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • A sprinkle of red pepper flakes optional


  • Add 1 lb. of sage sausage to a large skillet over high heatBreak up and brown the sausage in the skillet.
  • Next, stir in 3 Tbsp. of butter. Mix it in well until it’s done melting.
  • Add ⅓ cup of flour and stir well, until you can’t see the flour anymore.
  • Gradually add 1½ cups of milk and stir well. Let it cook a minute or two.
  • Slowly add another 1½ cups of milk and stir well. Let it cook another minute or so, then add 1 Tbsp. maple syrup and 1 tsp. Chicago steak seasoning plus ½ tsp. garlic powder. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  • Allow it to bubble and thicken until it reduces into a thick gravy. When you can move it around in the pan with your spatula or wooden spoon and it’s so thick it takes a bit to spread back, you know it’s ready!
  • Serve hot over freshly made biscuits, and enjoy!
