This Spicy Turkey Sausage Gravy is bursting with spicy goodness with jalapenos and buffalo sauce! Oh my…this is definitely the dream breakfast for the lover of all things spicy. The gravy is so creamy and delicious with turkey sausage for a healthier option. Not a fan of spicy food? You can easily omit the peppers and buffalo sauce and still get a wonderful tasting gravy with hints of sage with this recipe! Admittedly, I am more of a pancakes and waffles type of girl. I decided to let my husband pick my brunch item this week for a manly take on the perfect dream breakfast. I should have known that it would 1) be spicy 2) involve meaty substances. So of course, spicy biscuits and gravy was born! I myself, haven’t had sausage gravy in years due to not eating beef or pork. I decided that I would make a spicy version with turkey sausage so that we could both enjoy it. I have discovered that I actually like biscuits and gravy! The buffalo sauce really adds a welcome flavor with this gravy that I have never had before.
What a week! My daughter had her 4th birthday party on Sunday…not sure where the time went! Move over My Little Pony’s, she is officially a lover of Barbie Dolls now…LOL. My week became even more interesting when I had to perform my civic duty as a juror this week. Oh what fun that was! Nothing like listening to testimony for two days over a deceitful used car salesman! It really just made me want to never buy a car again.
You guys are probably going to be annoyed with me, but I am still obsessed with pumpkin right now. I am working on a couple more pumpkin recipes and then I will be moving on to all things peppermint in honor of Christmas.

It’s not easy to make sausage gravy look pretty and delicious, but you sure did it! I want a plate of this right now. (Speaking of plates, I have that blue plate too!)
Thanks so much Andi! I love our blue plate!
When are you making this again? I need some jalapeno goodness now!
I’m glad you enjoyed it…very soon!
Made this yesterday. I bought pork sausage without thinking but it turned out great! Never thought of using peppers or hot sauce in gravy. Loved the heat! I only wish my biscuits had turned out as good 😛
That’s awesome…I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂
