For Sausage
1 lb ground pork
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp course-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp dried sage or poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes

For Gravy
1/3 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk or more as needed

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with your hands until well blended.

Liberally spay a fry pan with cooking spray. Add sausage and cook over medium heat until sausage is crumbed and cooked through.

Sprinkle cooked sausage with 1/3 cup flour and mix well. Add 1 1/2 cups milk and stir until mixture is thickened. Add more milk a bit at a time if gravy is too thick.

Served hot over freshly baked biscuits.
