Pepper... white pepper to be exact.  That's all it needs.
I once saw someone add diced hard-boiled eggs to it....that was just wrong on so many levels.....

    The grandchildren and I had breakfast at Bob Evans thie morning  and it was really great.  The sausage gravy and biscults eere really good.  They must have someone new in the kitchen as the last time I had biscuits there, they were quite dreadful.  Today, they were as good as the ones that I remember from years ago!  Also, the eggs were perfectly poached.

        I have to agree - all of the add ins sound like they may be good but biscuits and sausage gravy to me can stand on their own...
         
        A light fluffy buttermilk biscuit split and covered with a gravy made with a good quality sausage, flour and whole milk - simmered to just the right consistency - not too thick or too runny - and a light sprinkling of pepper. 
         
        I can almost see this happening this weekend - I can do a passable sausage gravy but the buttermilk biscuits are going to have to come out of a frozen Pillsbury bag - no mess and they're far better than any biscuit I could make.

          Well yah'all have made my mind up as to what I am having for breakfast but there will be no peppers or onions in my gravy. I do like fresh cracked pepper and the addition of poultry seasoning, sounds interesting.
          My own personal tastes leaned towards Bacon gravy rather than Sausage gravy, that was when good bacon was available. Today's bacon is pumped full of water so sausage gravy is now the better choice. Again! only if you can get good seasoned sausage.
           I like to build a biscuit & gravy plate with, fresh buttered(no margarine) biscuit, over easy/ fried eggs, and gravy as a topping.
          I can hear my belt stretching already. Better substitute poached eggs.

                  The real SOS?  I've personally never had it - although I came from an Army family the closest we ever came to it was a ground beef gravy on toast - which wasn't bad but it wasn't the famous Creamed Chipped Beef.  My Mother has an Army cookbook from the forties that has the SOS recipe that feeds 100 - along with lots of others - I'm going to borrow it the next time I visit.

                      Dearfolk,
                         I've actually seen livermush gravy with biscuits on a menu in North Carolina. Didn't try it, though... they had "done run out" for the day. "We run out ever' day," the waitress told me.
                            Wholeheartedly, Ort.

                          Livermush is alot like scrapple, it's good stuff for breakfast. There is a distinct version in the low country that uses rice instead of cornmeal, because that's what they had!

                            Sausage, Hamburger, white or red, Chipped Beef all fall under the term SOS. But "real" SOS is Chipped Beef.

                                We're about as far North and West as you can get, in Spokane, WA and there is a restaurant here: Frank's Diner, that serves homemade country sausage gravy with Biscuits. They ask if you want grilled onions and green peppers with your gravy. Hot sauce (Tabasco) is brought to the table. I've got to tell you, it's goooood stuff!
