Sausage Gravy (and biscuits)

Cooking oil
Biscuits (I used frozen, ready to bake today!) Prepared according to package directions.

Brown sausage in the heavy skillet, crumbling as you go. (I had very little sausage this morning, so it was more like sausage-flavored gravy!) Scoot the sausage to one side of the skillet when done.

Add 3 tablespoons of cooking oil to skillet. add 1/2 cup flour to the oil, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Pepper as desired.
Adding salt to the flour for roux

Stir the flour into the oil, keeping this part of the skillet over the heat.

Biscuits! (NO they are not burned, they are golden perfection!)

Stir the sausage into the browned roux.

Add milk to the skillet, all at once, or at least in a continous stream, stirring as you go. This prevents lumps.
Cook, stirring contantly, over medium heat, until the gravy thickens.

Stir as you go!

Add more milk if the gravy is too thick.
