Since this is my week to cook from the freezer and from jars, and add in leftovers when I can, I made biscuits and sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and grits for breakfast yesterday. The biscuits were left over from the day before. The grits were left over from Sunday. The sausage was from a jar.
It looks like a lot of grease in that jar but it is not and it’s disappointing since I use the grease to brown the flour for the gravy. It’s barely on the side of the jar and not very thick and not in the middle of the jar. I didn’t even get a teaspoon of grease and had to add butter to brown the flour.
I count on one pint of sausage to be enough for one batch of sausage gravy, sausage added to omelettes one morning and then I like to chop potatoes, brown them, add the sausage, then add peppers and onions and cook those. I’ll scramble a couple of eggs in a separate pot and add the cooked eggs in, then top it all off with some cheese.
Out of one pint jar of canned sausage, I can get all three of those breakfasts.
I always brown my flour, make a light brown roux because I love the taste of the toasted flour.
There you go . . scrambled eggs, grits, biscuits with sausage gravy.
