Sausage Gravy (for those buttermilk biscuits...)

If you are into a heartier topping to your fluffy biscuits, this gravy is the cure to your craving. It's thick, creamy, slightly salty, slightly spicy... it's delicious!
This recipe comes from a blog called Simply Recipes that I have been following for quite some time and have loved everything I made from their site :)

What you need:
1 lb. pork sausage
1/4 c. finely chopped yellow onion
6 T. all-purpose flour
4 c. whole milk
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
1-2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1-2 dashes Tabasco sauce (I omitted this because I am a wimp...)
1-2 T. butter, or bacon grease

What to do:
Preheat a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat
Crumble the sausage into the pan and let it brown for 1-2 minutes, then turn stove down to medium heat and sprinkle the flour over the sausage
Stir in the flour and cook for 6-8 minutes, until the mixture starts bubbling and turns golden brown
Stir in seasonings and cook for 1 minute
Slowly add the milk and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until thickened (about 15 minutes)

Pour lavishly over buttermilk biscuits and consume right away!

Licking my plate,
