Instant Pot Sausage Gravy Recipe
I love using my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker to make breakfast in the mornings. I keep oatmeal, cornmeal porridge, Instant Pot egg bites, grits, and this breaksfast sausage on regular rotation.
I used to make my sausage gravy on my stove top but it’s so much easier to make in the Instant Pot, so why not. The great thing is after it’s done cooking, the Instant Pot will keep it warm for you. This makes it the perfect breakfast idea for those weekend morning breakfast.
You can serve this Instant Pot Sausage Gravy with homemade biscuits or canned biscuits. I won’t lie…depending on my mood, I will sometimes just throw some Pilsburys in the oven. If you can do homemade though…do it.
How to Make Instant Pot Sausage Gravy
First, you will want to set your Instant Pot on sauté and brown your pork sausage. I use plain pork sausage but you could experiment with the different flavors if you like.
Once your meat is brown, you will add your butter and stir until the butter has melted in. Added fat is good for this recipe.
Then you’ll sprinkle your flour over the meat and stir for about 1 minute. Then add in your maple syrup, milk, salt, and black pepper, and stir, ensuring that there are no brown bits stuck to the bottom.
Turn off your Instant Pot and then set it to low pressure, cook time of 2 minutes. Cover and walk away.
Once timer goes off, do a quick release and open. Your gravy will look watery but stir and it will thicken up. If you want it even thicker, select medium sauté and cook and stir until desire thickness is reached.

How to Serve Instant Pot Sausage Gravy
Serve this sausage gravy over fluffy oven baked biscuits that have been broken in half. Or eat it by the spoonful…which is what I do from time to time.
I like to keep my gravy warm by turning on the slow cooker function in my IP rather than the keep warm function. I set it to slow cook on medium and cover it with my Instant Pot glass lid. That way my family can go for seconds and thirds without worrying that the gravy is cold.
