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.
Fluffy Biscuits (here)
1 chub (1 lb) turkey breakfast sausage (or sausage of choice, you could also use bacon)
6 tablespoons flour
6 tablespoons fat (Earth Balance, Melt, Coconut oil, Bacon fat, etc)
4 cups almond or cashew milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (can be found in the same aisle as barbecue sauce, hickory is my go to)
1/16 to 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
Cook sausage; drain & set aside. In same skillet make roux: add fat of choice & melt over medium heat; add flour & cook about 2 minutes.
Add milk & whisk until starts to thicken & color deepens; add seasonings & liquid smoke & continue to whisk until about desired thickness; add in sausage & heat through.
Serve over fluffy biscuits & enjoy.
