Breakfast Fries

After every fun holiday-party-weekend, you may need a ‘feel better’ breakfast.  I know that we often do and I have just the thing for you too!  This is actually quite easy considering you’re using frozen fries instead of making biscuits!  Heck, as gluttonous as this may look, it may just be healthier for you too…it’s what I tell myself at least! 😉

The Starting Lineup

  • 1 bag frozen French fries (I prefer steak fry cut)
  • 1lb sausage
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • Season Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp butter   

Preheat your oven to the french fry package directions and get a baking sheet prepped.
Next, warm the butter in your pan and then add in all of the sausage.  Cook the breakfast sausage on medium until it’s no longer pink.  If you don’t feel too hot now, you definitely don’t want to know what it’s like after you eat undercooked pork.  Bleh. 

 After the sausage is cooked through, sprinkle in the flour directly onto the meat.  *I know, I know, traditionally you remove the meat, but I find this step unnecessary..Give this a good stir to coat all of the sausage in the flour.  You’ll immediately start to see it thicken up. 

 Next add in the milk while, again, stirring to incorporate everything.  Turn down to medium low while giving the gravy an occasional stir.  Please give a few tastes at this point and season as you like.  I prefer a pinch of season salt and a heavy hand with the pepper. 

 While the sausage gravy is simmering away, place your French fries in the oven and allow to cook as directed.  The 20+ minutes your fries are in the oven is perfect due to the gravy needing to cook that flour out while it’s simmering.  Remember to keep stirring ever so often and feel free to add a bit more milk (a little at a time) if it seems too thick for your liking. 

   Once the fries are hot and crisp, serve on a plate with a big ladle full of gravy!! (and perhaps an egg or two on the side;))
