Sausage Gravy on Toast

sausage gravy on toast

In this week’s #RachelRecipe I’m sharing one of my favorite dinners growing up… Sausage Gravy on Toast. Yes, I recognize that this seems more like brunch food but when we were little this was something we had often for dinner and I LOVED it. Watch the video below where I explain why it’s such a special meal memory for me and then continue on to see the full recipe!

It’s time to prep your toast!

You could simply toast your bread but since we’re already having a calorie-fest I say you just embrace it! Butter your bread and broil it for a few minutes until crispy. Now top with gravy (and a little more butter if you’re inclined!) and enjoy.

  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 pound country sausage
  3. 1 small yellow onion, diced
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 3 tablespoons flour
  6. 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  9. 6 slices Texas toast
  10. 4 tablespoons butter
  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat through, throw in the sausage and begin to crumble as it cooks with a wooden spoon. Sauté until brown and crispy. Add the onions and garlic and stir to combine. Cook until they've softened. Add the flour and cook for a few minutes. Slowly stream in the whole milk, while you whisk continuously. Lower the flame and cook until the milk has bubbled and thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Liberally butter the toast and place under the broiler until golden brown. Spoon the sausage gravy over each slice of toast and top with a bit more butter. Enjoy!

    Miss Rachel–

    This sounds wonderful, and certainly has overtones of your Mum’s southern background.

    My own mother made something similar–she called them “General MacArthur Sandwiches” and were made with ground beef and chopped onion, all loose fried with a bit of water and butter, S&P, and served open faced on buttered toast. My father hated them, so we got them only when he was out of town for dinner. Mmmmm. When I became the Mom, I changed it up a bit by making brown gravy, but all else the same.The memories–like your sausage gravy on toast–are so strong.Pure comfort food. And I’m trying yours!

    As always, thanks for sharing. You light up my day!

    We grew up eating this for breakfast, lunch or dinner, as well as dried chipped beef and gravy served the same way. Brings back wonderful childhood memories.
