Loaded with sage, this creamy gravy packs the same nostalgic flavor as the classic sausage version. It's excellent spooned over warm split biscuits, or try it for dinner as a baked potato topper. The recipe comes from Nettie Colon, head cook at Chef Camp in Minnesota.


  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 12 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • Chef Camp Buttermilk Biscuits (see recipe)


  1. In a very large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add shallot and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until shallot is tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  2. Sprinkle flour over vegetables in pan and stir to combine. Cook 1 minute. Carefully add stock, stirring as you pour. Add milk, sage, salt and pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue simmering, stirring occasionally, until gravy reaches desired thickness, 1 to 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
