Biscuits & Gravy Recipe (keto style)

 So one of my favorite breakfast foods of all time is biscuits and gravy.  I love it with or without sausage.  I just love it.  I love the flavor, the way it fills you up, and how easy it is to make.  I didn't think I'd have it ever again.  Well, one of the main reasons I bought SOUTHER KETO (click here) was because I saw it had a recipe for keto biscuits (1.5g net carbs) and sausage gravy (1.5 net carbs) recipes.  I was so excited to give it a try.  My husband, who is NOT keto, had double-so that will tell you how it tasted.

I am still getting used to the texture of almond flour, not being as powdery (kind of grainy), but with the gravy over it-you don't even notice honestly.

Drop Biscuits

1 1/2 cup finely ground blanched almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted but not hot

  1. Preheat oven to 400, grease your baking sheet with oil or use parchment paper (I used my silicone liner)
  2. In a medium-size bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, sour cream, and butter together.
  4. Pour into the flour mixture, and mix well.
  5. Allow batter to sit for 5 mins
  6. Drop the batter by the large spoonfuls on a prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for about 10-12 mins.
  7. Allow to cool a bit and enjoy!
One thing I noticed about this recipe is that when I did large spoonful's I only got six biscuits; maybe my spoons are giant, IDK-but just food for thought :) 

Sausage Gravy

1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (not necessary but does add some thickness)
salt & pepper to taste

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown sausage until done (get it nice and crumbly)
  2. Reduce heat to low and stir in cream, water, and xantham gum.
  3. Stir stir stir, until it gets thick.
  4. Add more water if it gets too thick.
  5. Add in salt and pepper as you like it (or whatever other spices you like)
Score: 9 out of 10
