Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

We don't have this often BUT every once in a while I need some biscuits and gravy!

For the biscuits, I use Pillsbury's frozen southern style biscuits. (In the freezer section)
 They are nothing like the refrigerate Pillsbury can biscuits, they are like homemade from scratch biscuits.  I LOVE these biscuits because you can take out one or six depending on how many you need. 

Sausage Gravy
1 pound ground sausage
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk (I use skim)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Brown sausage in a skillet, stirring until it crumbles. Drain.  Set sausage aside.

Add butter to pan; heat over low heat until butter melts. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually add milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in seasonings and sausage. Cook until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly.  Serve over biscuits.
