Biscuits and Sausage Gravy Gluten free (can be made dairy free)
We use butter in this recipe at home but it can be made with a butter substitute or margarine, just make sure it’s cold and a fairly solid.
For the biscuits, I followed the Gluten free biscuit recipe found at kidswithfoodallergies.org however, I adapted ingredients for what I had on hand.
- Sausage Gravy
- 1 chub Ground Breakfast Sausage
- 1 white Onion, diced
- 2 cloves Garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp Cornstarch
- 1.5-2 cups Beef Stock
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp each, Salt & Pepper
- Few Tbsp cooking oil (I used Grapeseed oil)
- 1/8 th cup milk substitute (I used original flavor Rice milk)
- 1.5 cups Gluten Free flour mix
- 1/2 cup Cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 cup cold Butter or Margarine, cubed
- 3/4 cup Milk substitute (I used rice milk)
Start with the biscuits. Preheat oven to 425°
In a large bowl, add and mix dry ingredients. Cut cold Butter or Margarine into chunks and add to flour mixture. Using a pastry blender, work butter into flour mixture. The goal is to combine, while still leaving chunks of butter (which creates flakes and layers within the biscuits).
Add milk substitute to flour and butter mixture. Using pastry mixer, incorporate milk.
Gather dough in bowl and form a loose ball. Put onto a floured counter top or cutting board and pat into a rectangle shape. Add a little flour to the top and fold into thirds. Pat into rectangle again and repeat.
Pat dough into rectangle again and when it’s about 1/2″ thick, cut into circle shapes. (I used the lid ring for a small Mason jar) Spray a cookie sheet with oil and place dough rounds across the pan. When pan is full, place into hot oven for approximately 12-15 minutes.
Because they are gluten free, these biscuits don’t brown as much as other kinds, but instead, have a light golden color at the edges.
While the biscuits are baking, gather ingredients for sausage gravy making.
Start by heating a larger pot on stovetop at medium-low heat with a Tbsp of oil. Add diced onion and garlic. Heat till softened and slightly translucent.
Add sausage and brown, stirring occasionally.
In a small container with a tight lid. Add the cornstarch and 1/2 cup of cold beef stock. Shake vigorously till incorporated. Add to meat mixture and stir. Add the rest of the stock and milk to the pot and heat till thickened. Add Salt, pepper & seasonings.
To serve, pour gravy over warm biscuits and Enjoy!
