When we lived in Virginia, our son-in-law, Blair, loved to go to the local diner for biscuits and sausage gravy. I could never see the appeal of this gray-looking glop until I decided to make it at home as a special treat for him.
Good sausage meat and a little hot sauce turned the dish an appetizing rosy color. While it's not a dish I would recommend having on a daily basis, for a once-in-a-while treat it's a great change from bacon and eggs.
1 small onion, finely chopped 1 lb. sausage meat
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Hot sauce to taste
Buttermilk biscuits to serve.
