Gravy for Biscuits and Gravy 

Made for a large group!

Saute in 14 qt brazier:
about 1/4 c oil, bacon fat, butter, or lard (because my sausage never has enough fat to combine with the flour)
6 lb ground sausage
onions
bit of garlic
(1/4 c all-purpose flour each lb sausage)
1 1/2 c flour for these 6 lb
salt to taste

Stir in:
(2 c milk per lb sausage)
12 c (3 qts) milk

Stir until smooth and thickened. As it cooks add:

salt to taste
pepper to taste

Add just a bit of:
nutmeg
allspice
cloves

Add salt or pepper or garlic or more fat to taste. If it tastes 'empty' try adding more fat.
