This gluten free biscuits and gravy recipe is yummy enough to become a tradition to treat mom on Mother’s Day, for breakfast on Thanksgiving, or, crazy as it sounds, even Christmas Eve dinners.

Sausage Gravy Ingredients

Before we dive into what you’ll need, make sure you check out my buttermilk biscuit recipe. Once your biscuits are in the oven, gather the following items for your gravy. This is just a quick overview, and you can find the full amounts and detailed instructions in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • Gluten-Free Biscuits: This recipe is going to use my homemade buttermilk biscuits, linked above.
  • Olive Oil
  • Sausage: Use your favorite kind of raw pork breakfast sausage. You can get links, but you will have to remove it from the casings, or bulks sausage. You can even use chicken or turkey sausage, if you prefer, or make your own homemade breakfast sausage.
  • 1:1 Gluten-Free Flour: Use the spoon and level method to avoid over-packing your flour.
  • Spices: You’ll need dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Whole Milk

How to Make Biscuits and Sausage Gravy from Scratch

Even though classic Southern biscuits and gravy sound like a labor-intensive dish, they’re really easy to make.

  • Make the Biscuits: Prepare the biscuits according to the directions in this recipe. I recommend preparing the gravy while your biscuits are baking. That way, you can pour it on when they’re fresh from the oven. Yum!
  • Cook the Sausage: Add the oil to a skillet over high heat and add the sausage. Break the sausage up and cook it until browned.
  • Add Dry Ingredients: Reduce the heat and add the flour and seasonings. Allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes.
  • Add Milk: Stir in the milk and cook until thickened.
  • Enjoy! Serve the gravy over your warm buttermilk biscuits.

Tips for Making The Best Gluten Free Sausage Gravy

Check out these helpful tips before you get cooking:

  • Brown Sausage Completely: When the sausage is fully cooked, there will be no pink areas visible. Don’t turn down the heat until your sausage is browned throughout.
  • Add Milk Slowly: Don’t try to pour in all 3 cups of milk at once. Add a little at a time, pouring slowly and mixing consistently.
  • Let Gravy Thicken Before Removing From Heat: You may need to cook the gravy for a couple of extra minutes after you mix in the milk. Once the consistency thickens, remove your gravy from the heat and serve it over the biscuits.
  • Make it in Advance: Sausage gravy is great for making ahead of time. See below for storage instructions.

Proper Storage

  • Refrigerate – Let your gluten free sausage gravy cool completely before you store it. Then place it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge. It’ll stay fresh for up to 4 days.
  • Freeze – If you want your homemade gravy to last longer, store it in the freezer, too! Once cooled, pour it into a freezer-safe bag or container and store it for up to 3 months. Let it thaw overnight in the fridge before you reheat it. If you store your gravy in a bag, lay it down flat in the freezer so it freezes and thaws faster.
  • Reheat – It should be reheated in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir the gravy occasionally until it’s reached your desired temperature and serve it over the biscuits. Microwavig could cause the gravy to curdle or separate.
