What would you call this dish?
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:50:51 PM »
If you made a white sauce from a roux, and added it to browned and drained ground sausage, what is that called? Would you call it something else if you added cheese to it?

Some Southern people do.  They call it cheesy sausage gravy and pour it over biscuits.

Yes, that is how I make sausage gravy. ETA: I don't normally add cheese to my sausage gravy, personally, but I can certainly see someone doing so.

What kind of cheese are you adding? Bechamel+ gruyere & parm = mornay sauce. But, I think people would probably call it alfredo.

I never made this before, it was just something I kind of threw together with what I had. I used a spicy Italian sausage and a shredded cheese blend from the supermarket (cheddar and jack). I topped it with halved grape tomatoes and threw it under the broiler for a few minutes to finish it.

I have never been tempted to eat or make sausage gravy in my life, in fact I was only vaguely aware of what it meant. But now that I've accidentally prepared it, I'm kind of in love with it.
