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.
- 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
- 10 oz. crumbled sausages, preferably pork
- 1 cup cream cheese or coconut cream
- 1 cup or chicken broth
- salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a cookie sheet or muffin pan with coconut oil spray.
- Beat the egg whites until very fluffy and firm.
- In a separate medium bowl, mix the baking powder into the almond flour.
- 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.
- Spoon a dollop of the dough onto the cookie sheet (or muffin tin) and bake for 11-15 minutes.
- Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.
- Gradually add cream cheese and broth; cook until mixture comes to a soft simmer and thickens, stirring constantly until smooth.
- Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Split biscuits in half. Place 2 halves on each of plates; top with about ⅓ cup gravy.
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!
Serving is 1 biscuit and 1/3 C gravy
