Gluten Free & Dairy Free Biscuits and Gravy
My husband has been begging me to make biscuits and gravy for him for who knows how long. I have resisted making them because I can’t eat biscuits and I can’t eat the gravy that goes on them. So really, why would I waste all that precious prep and cook time in the kitchen to make something that smells delicious but then I can’t eat it. Exactly – you see my point.
Enter in gluten free Bisquick. Normally a large box of Bisquick is pretty cheap but as most of you know, nothing gluten free is ever cheap. A small box of gluten free Bisquick runs about $4.59 at Walmart. Now, could I make homemade gluten free biscuits on my own? Sure. Do I want to? Not particularly. So in this instance, I completely justified using a pre-made box mix to help me out and save me some time. Can you blame me?
To make the biscuits, all you have to do is follow the directions on the box. It really is that simple. Now that we have gotten over that part, it is time to move onto the delicious sausage gravy that you generously dump all over the biscuits. My mouth is literally watering just thinking about it.
1 pound ground pork or turkey
1 tablespoon almond flour/meal
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 can coconut milk
2 teaspoons sage
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup chicken stock (if needed)
salt & pepper to taste
- Saute the sausage in a large skillet until completely cooked. Remove sausage from the pan, saving about 2 tablespoons of the drippings from the sausage. Keep these drippings in the pan.
- Add the almond flour and arrowroot powder to the skillet and whisk with the sausage fat over medium-low heat, until a paste is formed, working to scrape up some of the sausage drippings. Be careful not to burn this. Patience is a virtue in this case.
- Pour in about 1/4 of the coconut milk, the sage, and paprika at this time and bring it up to medium heat, stirring often. It is key to get all of those delicious browned sausage bits into your gravy.
- Add the remaining coconut milk, stirring as you go to avoid lumps, and bring to a light simmer. Add your sausage back in, and simmer until gravy reaches your desired thickness. If your gravy becomes too thick for your liking, add some chicken stock to thin it out.
- Generously pour over your sliced biscuits and serve.
