Easy Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy

Whenever someone mentions comfort food, my mind goes to biscuits and gravy. It just doesn’t get any better than a flaky biscuit with a flavorful sausage gravy on top! This recipe is yummy enough to become a tradition to treat mom on Mother’s Day, for Christmas morning breakfast, or, crazy as it sounds, even Thanksgiving dinners. Perfect for family celebrations all year long. It’s also easy enough to be a simple addition to your weekly dinner rotation!

I love how quickly this dish comes together. The biscuits bake up in about 10 minutes, and the gravy simmers to perfection on the stove in no time. These gravy-covered biscuits are also super quick to disappear from the plate!

What You’ll Need

Before we dive into the sausage gravy ingredients, make sure you check out my buttermilk biscuit recipe. Once your biscuits are in the oven, gather the following items for your gravy.

  • Gluten-Free Biscuits: This recipe is going to use my homemade buttermilk biscuits, linked above.
  • Olive Oil: You’ll need 2 teaspoons.
  • 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 measuring your flour.
  • Spices: You’ll need dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Whole Milk: About 3 cups.

How to Make Biscuits and Gravy from Scratch

Even though classic Southern biscuits and gravy sound like a labor-intensive dish, they’re really easy to make. You just need one bowl to make the biscuit dough, one skillet to cook the gravy, and one plate to serve up your masterpiece!

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!

Make the Sausage Gravy

Heat Oil & Add Sausage: Add the oil to a skillet over high heat and add the sausage.

Cook Sausage: Break the sausage up and cook it until browned.

Reduce Heat & Add Dry Ingredients: Reduce the heat and add in the flour, dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and salt. Allow the mixture to cook for a few minutes.

Add Milk: Stir in the milk and cook until thickened.

Tips for Making Biscuit Gravy

I’ve gathered a handful of helpful tips for this recipe – be sure to check them out 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.

Can this Recipe Be Made in Advance?

Yes! Sausage gravy is great for making ahead of time. It’ll stay fresh in the fridge for up to 4 days. Just let it cool completely before you store it.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

Store cooled sausage gravy in an airtight container in the fridge. 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.

Can I Freeze This Recipe?

Want your homemade gravy to last longer? You can 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.
