Servings 6


  • 1 Cup Diced Mushrooms
  • 1 Pound Ground Mild Breakfast Sausage
  • 9 Ounce Pork Chorizo Sausage (I used El Mexicano brand)
  • 3 Cups Chicken Or Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 3/4 Cup Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar


  • Sauté your mushrooms in oil or butter until browned. Place the cooked mushrooms into a large sauce pan or stock pot that can hold all the ingredients listed above.
  •  Next cook up your sausage.  Both the chorizo and breakfast sausage can be cooked in the same pan.  Once the sausage has browned a bit, add it to the mushrooms, already in the pot.
  • While still warm, add 1 cup flour to the meat and mushroom mixture.  Stir until the flour is fully combined with the meat and no lumps of flour remain.  This should create a very thick paste.
  • slowly add warm broth to the pot over the meat mixture.  Stir frequently with a whisk as the gravy thickens.
  • Serve over cheesy garlic biscuits and enjoy! Grab the recipe for the biscuits here:
