Not to sure on the 2 cans of cheese soup for the sausage gravy. Never heard of it before and it doesn’t say anything about this in the directions. Are you suppose to add them after the milk. Or can you omit them if you choose. I prefer to omit but if I do would I need to add more milk? Thanks love your site!
Hello Vickie… thanks for your question, the fun of crocking is that you can do just about anything you want! If you do eliminate the soup, it will most likely make it more runny, and not thick like gravy. it is very good, but you may want to substitute a different cream soup to replace it if you don’t like the Cheese soup! Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
leave out the soup and elimate most of the 1550g of sodium
I don’t get the point of this recipe. Before adding the soup and putting it in the crock…you’ve already made sausage gravy. In this case, using the crock adds MORE work and time. (Just omit the butter, the grease from the sausage is the fat you need for the roux).
Hello Elizabeth! Making this recipe in the crock pot makes it easier when getting it ready for guests or taking it to a pot luck! Thanks for the question! Happy Crocking!
I am going to make this for 20 hungary teenagers for breakfast. Can I make it the night before and let it set in the crock on low all night without stirring it? Also is the six servings supposed to cover 12 biscuits? These kids will be very hungary and I want to make sure there is enough to go around.
Hello Andrea! In regards to your question, it all depends on your crock pot. Some crocks cook hottier than others, but I cook many of my breakfast meals overnight, but my crock turns to warm once it has crocked for the amount of time desired. Also the gravy made is for 6 servings, the biscuits needed depends on the biscuits the individuals use, I would allow for more biscuits such as a ratio of 1 1/2 – 2 biscuits for serving, as some may want a condiment on the biscuit to go along with the Gravy. Hope this helps, and… Read more »

[…] Sausage Gravy (yummy on biscuits or eggs!): RECIPE […]
I have made this recipe with MANY different cream soups! Yes, cream of mushroom is good, but my favorite is to do 1 can of cheddar cheese soup and 1 can of cream of potato. Then we put it on scrambled eggs instead of biscuits. Super yummy!! 🙂
We went on a party bus for my nephew’s bachelor and bachelorette parties. I planned for everyone to come back to our house afterwards and have a good breakfast, since it was going to be a late night. I searched for a recipe that I could put in the crock pot and have it ready when we got home (around 7 hours). A normal gravy recipe couldn’t sit in the crock pot for this long. I have to say I was leery about the cheese soup, but tried this recipe anyway. WOW! Thank you for sharing it! It turned out… Read more »
Thank you so much G. Barker for the rave review! Always love hearing a success story! Happy Crocking! 🙂
My stove is broken, is there any way to cook the biscuits in the crock pot?
Hi Kim, I have read that you can crock biscuits on the warm setting for 6-7 hours. Do Not Lift Lid! or on Low for 2-3 hours. This would be a trial and error method, as I have not done this myself. Hope this helps!
I was wondering if u are able to freeze after cooking.
