Bob Evans Sausage Gravy

My husband loves Bob Evan’s Sausage Biscuit and Gravy for an occasion breakfast treat on weekends. Our local Bob Evans is really quick and I can a healthy breakfast and still follow my Weight Watchers Plan.

I also make this great treat at home for a quick or last minute dinner. I purchase the sausage when it on sale and freeze the chubs for future use. Below is the recipe from Bob Evans for the Gravy. I think it is important to use the Bob Evans Brand of sausage. I have tried other brands and it just does not taste the same.

Sausage Gravy

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: Makes 4 servings


1 pound Bob Evans Original Recipe Sausage Roll
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk (I use 2% without any loss of taste)
Salt & black pepper to taste
*dash of nutmeg to taste (this is my own add in)
8 prepared biscuits

Crumble and cook sausage in large skillet over medium heat until browned. Stir in flour until dissolved. Gradually stir in milk. Cook gravy until thick and bubbly. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot over biscuits. Refrigerate leftovers.

Italian Turkey Sausage

I have been experimenting with Italian Sausage for pizza and pasta and have settled on the following version. It is adapted from my Kitchen Aid grinder recipes. You can grind your own turkey or chicken for this but I have been lazy and just buy ground turkey when it is on sale. For now I just cook it loose, but in the summer I will use the Kitchen aid and make my own links.

My family didn’t even notice that I used turkey and made a “healthy” version. It is so good on homemade pizza. I don’t even miss the pepperoni.

1 pound ground pork, chicken or turkey
3/4 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne or chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder or dried minced onion
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp marjoram or savory
1/8 tsp crushed rosemary
1/8 tsp thyme
2 tbsp balsamic or red wine vinegar.

Sprinkle the seasonings and vinegar onto the ground meat and mix together by hand.

Make a small patty and cook it thoroughly. Taste it and adjust the seasonings as your prefer. Cover, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
