Set your Instant Pot to saute mode. Add 1 lb. sage breakfast sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
Add 3 Tbsp. butter to the sausage and mix until it melts.
Stir in ⅓ cup all-purpose flour until fully incorporated.
Slowly pour in 3 cups milk, stirring frequently. It's important you do this slowly so the milk does not curdle.
Add in maple syrup, garlic powder, and a pinch of pepper. Mix in, then cook for 2 minutes on saute mode before adding in Chicago steak seasoning and an extra pinch of pepper. Add red pepper flakes for spice, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
Serve over air fryer biscuits, chicken fried steak, waffles, or with toast.
Add 1 lb. of sage sausage to a large skillet over high heat. Break 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!
