Low Carb Biscuits and Gravy

Who doesn’t love a good biscuits and gravy meal? Biscuits and gravy is one of my favorite breakfasts. I was disappointed when I started the Keto eating plan. I don’t like the word “diet” so I wont use it often. I thought I had to give up on one of my favorites. I was sad but determined. I started searching online for something that could compare. This is what I found.

I have made this twice in the last month. It took a minute to adjust to the slightly different flavor in the gravy. It is a bit creamy. I like a good savory gravy so I just added a bit more spice to it and the second time it was just right. Again, this is not my original recipe and I take no credit for it what so ever. I am just sharing what I found for you to enjoy.

I used chicken broth and used a silpat mat so I cut out the coconut oil.

Low Carb Biscuits and Gravy 

Ingredients

Serves 8

Biscuits

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons very cold butter or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or other seasoning of your liking (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil spray

Gravy

  • 10 oz. crumbled sausages, preferably pork
  • 1 cup cream cheese or coconut cream
  • 1 cup beef broth or chicken broth
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a cookie sheet or muffin pan with coconut oil spray.
  2. Beat the egg whites until very fluffy and firm.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, mix the baking powder into the almond flour.
  4. Cut in COLD butter and salt (if the butter isn’t chilled, the biscuits won’t be flakey). Gently fold in the dry mixture into the egg whites.
  5. Spoon a dollop of the dough onto the cookie sheet (or muffin tin) and bake for 11-15 minutes.

Gravy

  1. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.
  2. Gradually add cream cheese and broth; cook until mixture comes to a soft simmer and thickens, stirring constantly until smooth.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Split biscuits in half. Place 2 halves on each of plates; top with about ⅓ cup gravy.

Tip!

Love cheese? Then sprinkle grated cheddar or parmesan on top of the dough before you pop the biscuits in the oven for a (good kind of) cheesy variation!
