Just a note on the lard issue... commercially processed lard is not the same as homemade lard. Homemade lard has no trans fats and is an excellent source of vitamin D. If you can find a good source of pork fat, render some lard and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Just a thought, lard verses veg.shortening, my Mother always used veg. shortening, Crisco to be exact, my husband's Mother always used lard. He had a heart before he was 50 years old and was hospitalized for several days. My DR tells me, I have no heart problems whatsoever.

Instead of lard or oil, I prefer to use butter in making my milk gravie. The flavor is soooo much better! I also prefer making my own biscuits as opposed to using pre-made.

I like the Pillsbury Grands frozen biscuits. The texture and taste are better than those from the refrigerated can, but a real advantage is making only the number of biscuits you need.

It looks nice and easy. I'm amused that some readers are upset by the idea of using lard, which is rendered pork fat. What, pray tell, do you think is the difference, other than the sausage fat being flavored?

Adding lard or shortening is QUITE unnecessary! This is one of my son's favorite meals, as we often have breakfast for supper, and Jimmy Dean is ALWAYS my sausage of choice! The cooked meat renders just enough fat to make a roux without any excess grease floating on top.

Instead of lard I use a small amount of canola oil. I also always use either beef boullion or chicken boullion in my gravy adds a lot of flavor.

Funny, I just made this last night, and I do not use lard. I brown the sausage just as I would hamburger and brown the already flavored grease that comes out of the sausage. It is better for you than Lard! And tastes much better! Also add more flour and seasoning to make the gravy go farther.....even cheaper! Great Idea for a fast and yummy supper or breakfast! Lots of great ideas here.
