Paleo Biscuits & Gravy

Hot biscuits with creamy sausage gravy make a hearty Southern breakfast. For true Paleo sausage, look for unsweetened, non-gmo grass-fed meat. Coconut milk and arrowroot powder make a thick, creamy gravy, that’s dairy-free, or you can use your favorite alternative milk. I added a bit of lemon juice to cover the coconut flavor, and it worked! This is a satisfying meal that can be ready in 20 minutes. Enjoy over fresh Paleo Baking Powder Biscuits.  Serves 4

Ingredients

    Biscuits:
  • 1 Recipe Paleo Baking Powder Biscuits
  • Gravy:
  • 1 lb. Breakfast Sausage, cut into small pieces. I like it uneven so there are a few large chunks
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage or poultry seasoning, or 1 tablespoon chopped herbs (sage, marjoram, basil, or parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional for a buttery flavor)
  • Plenty black pepper
  • 1 can (13.75 oz.) unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
  • Unprocessed salt to taste, depending on sausage

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage for 3 minutes. Add onion and sauté until it begins to soften. Add arrowroot, nutmeg, sage or herbs, and nutritional yeast, if using. Stir to coat the sausage evenly.
  2. Add coconut milk, and heat just to boiling. Do not overcook the milk. Overcooked full-fat coconut milk may separate the oil from the liquid.
  3. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve immediately over Paleo Baking Powder Biscuits
