Our brand new cookbook – Diverse Power: Place and Plate, Culture and Cooking in West Georgia – is in the hands of the publishing company.

Set to debut at Diverse Power’s Annual Meeting of Members on May 11, the tourism/cookbook features recipes from members and employees of the electric cooperative. For February, we spotlight recipes from three of our employees.

Sausage Gravy

  • 1 pound pork sausage

Crumble and cook sausage in 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle flour over sausage and stir until dissolved. Gradually stir in milk. Cook gravy until thick and bubbly.

Season to taste with garlic salt (my secret ingredient) and black pepper. Serve over hot biscuits.
