We always just called it sausage gravy...so as not to be confused with hamburger gravy.
Same gravy different meat.
A pound of hamburger gravy and a loaf of bread plus a veggie can sure be "stretched" at dinner time just add more gravy for more mouths.
Before my time.
Back during WWII all the men were in the service my Dad lived with the rest of the family Aunts, cousins, grandparents the entire family. in McGehee, Ark.
The war was on but the depression wasn't over in rural Arkansas.
He told me that sometimes it was referred to as "Passover Gravy".
There was so much gravy for all the mouths the meat was just passed over the skillet at breakfast.
The meat might make it in the pot for supper.
