    While the sausage cooks, make the gravy. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and sauté onions until just softened. Add in ground sausage breaking up any clumps with a wooden spoon and cook thoroughly. Place the cooked sausage and onions in a bowl, and set them aside while you continue to make the gravy.
