Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and Gravy (15 minutes prep time)

              (A family favorite)

                     Biscuits (makes 12)

  • Use a fork to mix ¼ C. expeller-pressed oil, coconut oil, or avocado
  • With ¾ C. milk/ water
  • Sift together 2 C. flour (wheat or unbleached)
  • With 1 T. baking soda (aluminum-free)
  • And ½ t. salt

Mix the dough together with a fork just until mixed.   (About 20 strokes.)  Make 12 small mounds of dough on a baking pan or roll out the dough to about 1 inch thick, then cut with a biscuit cutter or glass.  Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes.

*Too much stirring will make the dough too heavy.

*This can be doubled but anymore than that, it will take too much stirring and will make the dough to heavy.

                  Gravy   (Make while the biscuits are baking.)

  • Brown 1 lb. of MSG-free sausage
  • Mix in 3 T. flour (wheat or unbleached) into the sausage.  (If there isn’t about 3 T. of fat from the sausage then add some butter.)
  • Cook for 1 minute.
  • Slowly pour in 3 cups of a mixture of milk, broth, and water.  Stirring constantly until gravy starts to thicken    (It will thicken more as it cools.)
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • For a richer flavor, add about 2 T. shredded Parmesan Cheese or sour cream at the end.
