My Dad was from Kentucky and my Mom was from Brooklyn so she had to learn some Southern Cooking for Dad. One of his favorites (and mine, too) was biscuits and gravy.

White Sausage Gravy
Take sausage – tube or patties (not links) broken into pieces;
Sauté until browned … remove from pan, leaving the grease in pan;
On medium heat, slowly add flour to the grease and stir until brown (it will be a thick consistency);
Lastly slowly add cold milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming until it is the consistency that you prefer.
Then add the browned sausage bits, stir and serve over biscuits…yum!
