I have a secret. When I was pregnant, I kept a list of the foods that I craved and couldnt eat. I titled it Food I Want to Eat, and I was constantly revising it. For some reason it made me feel better to write them down. Gravy biscuits were at the top of that list, along with loads of other not-very-healthy things (Krispy Kreme). I know lots of ladies have to go on special diets when they are pregnant due to things like gestational diabetes, so Im sure some of yall can commiserate with me when I say that I just couldn’t get the foods that were off-limits out of my head.
Yall, I am so happy that I finally figured out how to make gluten free gravy biscuits, although its a little late to satisfy my pregnancy cravings since the last baby I will have is turning one this week. I made up a GF mayonnaise biscuit recipe based on the GF cheddar biscuits I already know how to make. If anyone has a better recipe, feel free to email it to me, I love biscuits! But Im not going to get out the rolling pin, so they have to be drop biscuits if Im cooking them. A note about the sausage: there dont seem to be many (any?) brands available where I shop that have done gluten testing. Sausage usually doesnt have any ingredients that would contain gluten, but it could still be processed in a facility that also processes gluten-containing foods. Ive never had a reaction to sausage, but eat at your own risk, or find a brand that has been tested. You can always call the manufacturer to check.
UPDATE: Jimmy Dean hot sausage now says gluten free right on the label!
1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick
1 tbsp metled butter
2 tbsp mayonaise
2/3 cup + 2 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 450, and line a baking pan with parchment paper. Mix ingredients together. Drop spoonfuls onto parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes. Biscuits will still be pale when they are done. Makes 6 biscuits.
1/2 lb hot breakfast sausage
2 cups milk
4 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
Over medium high heat, crumble sausage in skillet. Cook until browned. Stir in cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk with a wire whisk. Cook until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve over biscuits.
