  • After frying the sausage, you may drain the grease as much as desired.
  • Leaving some grease in helps to flavor the gravy. 
To Freeze:
  • The sausage gravy may be stored in zip lock freezer bags for up to 6 months in the freezer.
  • Run the bags under lukewarm water for 60 seconds to loosen from the bag. 
  • Reheat on the stove top, covered, on medium heat until bubbling hot. 
  • Alternatively, heat from frozen in the slow cooker on high heat for 4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low.
