Spicy Sausage Gravy Recipe

Our Christmas Morning tradition is to have Spicy Sausage Gravy on biscuits. This year, I made our meal entirely from our food storage. It's one of my very first meals I prepared 100% from stored foods.

1# Spicy Sausage (pressure canned) Flour (stored)
½ & ½ (pressure canned)
Bisquick, stored in vacuum sealed canning jars.
I am getting away from storing Bisquick. I am now storing just cases of flour and red hard wheat from the Self-Reliance store.

Eggs, stored with coconut oil. Now that I have chickens I am working on testing to see how long they last with the bloom still on. 

I have recipes I just don't cook with them. Sorry. But, this is what I do. 
Hard boil the eggs.
Put the sausage in the pan and warm it up. Then I drain off most of the grease. Add about 1/4 cup of flour, to form the roux. Pour in about 3 cups of ½ & ½ . Cook until it looks like gravy.
Make biscuits from Bisquick or use your favorite biscuit recipe. I tend to make my biscuits very flat because I prefer them extra crispy.

Split the biscuits, pour gravy over the top and sprinkle with chopped up hard boiled eggs.

Spicy sausage: I pressure canned sausage in November. Direction for caning meat is in my canning booklet that came with my canner. Sausage is one of the meats you should pre-cook before canning.
Flour and Bisquick I initially stored these items in PET jars, which was a mistake. Remember all plastic is air permeable, which will cause these items to eventually go rancid. Yuck! Now I stored these types of items in 1/2 gallon mason jars sealed with my vacuum sealer.

Learning as I go...

“Store what you eat, eat what you store.”

    1. Yes, Donna. In fact that is what I can is 1/2/ & 1/2.

  2. Here you go:

  3. Does the flour need an oxygen absorber when you can it?

  4. 3 Researches SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually kill fat by consuming Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
