I may have gotten myself into a bit of trouble. I’ve worked so long to get my paleo biscuit recipe just the way I want it, that now I am coming up with lots of meal ideas that use the biscuits. These biscuits are really, really good, especially right out of the oven, but they are most definitely in the category of Paleo Treat, which means we should not be eating them everyday. Not that I would do that.
What I have for you today is one of my favorite comfort foods: sausage gravy and biscuits. At first I thought this was a Southern specialty, but then I remembered that we had this growing up and I’m from the midwest. So maybe it’s Midwestern. And Southern. Wherever it’s from, it’s delicious.
For the biscuit recipe, I’m going to be difficult and make you buy my book, Your Paleo Holiday, which you can download right this very second from my online store.
But the sausage gravy recipe you can get right here for free. Yay!
As I stood at the stove stirring this delicious concoction, I was thinking of what I was going to say to convince my kids to try it. But lo and behold, they required no coaxing whatsoever. And here’s the kicker – my son, who usually takes an hour and a half to complete a meal, was done just as quickly as me. And then he had seconds!!!
Of course, they did try to pick up the biscuits (and gravy) and eat it with their hands. I know, they’re animals. Homeschooled children are supposed to always be polite and have perfect manners. Well, ahem, not the case in this house.
Now, please don’t be mad, but this is more a method than a recipe. Your sausage will most likely have a different fat content than mine and so I can only guide you here. But I believe you will be able to figure out what to do and have a successful dish.
Here’s the general rule for any sort of gravy or cream sauce:
- 1 Tablespoon of fat
- 1 Tablespoon of flour (arrowroot, tapioca, cassava, tiger nut, other paleo flour)
- 1 Cup of liquid
- Yields a little over one cup of gravy or sauce
See the recipe below for more details.
This is not diet food by any means, but it is delicious, warm and hearty. Perfect for a chilly night or when you’re getting over a cold and just want something comforting. Or maybe Christmas morning. Or the day before Thanksgiving when you want a simple dinner. Really, it’s good anytime and…drumroll please…..done in 30 minutes or less. Including the biscuits!
