Biscuits and Country Sausage Gravy

My family loves biscuits and gravy (B&G), especially my youngest brother.  Before he married he was attending college near where I lived & could come hang out between classes & his job; I made B&G often for him.  Now that I’m allergic to dairy I knew I needed to create a non-dairy country gravy recipe so I can continue to enjoy this feast.   This is my new (non-dairy) gravy recipe.
