Green Chile Sausage Gravy In a large skillet (I love my cast iron skillets) brown the breakfast sausage until just browned and remove from pan, drain any excess fat (I used lean sausage, so left the little bit of fat behind for flavor).
In the same skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat, slowly whisk in flour until thickened, just a couple of minutes. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, it will thicken as you whisk it, keep whisking until smooth. Add diced green chiles, salt and return the sausage to the gravy, stirring to combine.
