“Sugar Roux” Sausage, Rice and Gravy

Interestingly the gravy is not sweet; caramelizing burns out the sweetness.


  • 2 12 ounce packages of sausage, cut up
  • 1/2 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 10 oz water
  • 2 cups cooked rice


Step 1

Cover the bottom of a pot with about 1/8" depth of vegetable oil, pour 3/4 cup of sugar into center of pot.

Step 2

Cook over medium heat, you'll begin to see the sugar breakdown. As it does begin stirring, you'll begin to see the sugar darken.

Step 3

Once it's the color a dark caramel add sausage and brown. Add onions and garlic and continue cooking

Step 4

Once sausage is browned add about 10 ounces of water, cover and simmer. Serve over rice.
