A Sausage Gravy Baked Potato, also known as an unfiltered joy-gasm.
This Sausage Gravy Baked Potato isn’t just your regular baked potato. No, this sausage gravy baked potato has ‘Murica written all over it, sausage gravy doused over top of it, and bacon crumbles. There’s no sweeter phrase uttered in all of humanity than “bacon crumbles”. This hearty spud is sure to please, and here just in time for Super Bowl. Typically people think of a baked potato as an accompaniment to a nice steak, but a sausage gravy baked potato has no problem doing just fine on it’s own.
This baked potato has a crispy skin, which really saves the skin of the potato for me. I’m not a big fan of regular baked potato skin, and if you aren’t either, this one will change your mind. The trick to getting the middle of this potato nice and soft is to stab nice and deep with the fork before baking. Don’t just tap it, stab it. This way you’ll have a nice perfectly baked center. Give it 6 good stabs all around, and you’ll be ready to rock. Good luck, and enjoy!
Sausage Gravy Baked Potato Recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 1 hour | Total Time: 1 hour 10 mins
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Garlic Salt
1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper
1 Lbs Sage Breakfast Sausage
4 Cups Milk
4 Tbsp Flour
2 Tbsp Butter
8 Strips of Bacon, Crumbled
2 Green Onions, Thinly Sliced
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2. Stab your potatoes all around 6 times, making sure the fork makes it all the way to the center of the potato. Combine your olive oil, garlic salt, and black pepper. Brush each potato with the mixture. Place the potatoes in the preheated oven on the top rack. Place a pan on the bottom rack to catch the drippings. Bake for 60 minutes.
Step 3. While your potatoes are baking, cook your bacon to desired doneness and place on a plate with paper towels on it to absorb the excess grease. When the bacon is cool enough, crumble it and set it aside. Slice your green onions an set aside.
Step 4. Brown the sausage in a large skillet on medium high heat. Remove the sausage but leave the drippings. Add the butter to the pan and then the flour. Stir the flour, drippings, and butter together to combine, cook for 1 minute. Add your milk and whisk together. Whisk as you simmer the gravy until desired thickness is reached. Remember, it will thicken more as it cools. Return the sausage back to the gravy.
Step 5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and top with sausage gravy, bacon, and green onions.
