If you don’t feel like a classic keto breakfast recipe like keto scrambled eggs or fried eggs, try these hearty, easy keto biscuits and gravy for breakfast!
The best part is that this recipe is super easy to make, using only basic keto ingredients, and it stores very well to meal prep your next breakfast.
How To Make Keto Biscuits And Gravy
First, you need to make your keto biscuits and then the sausage gravy.
Let’s see below how you can make both very quickly to meal prep a week of comforting keto breakfast.
Making the keto biscuits
Before you start making the sausage gravy, prepare a batch of fluffy keto biscuits following my Keto Biscuit Recipe.
These almond flour keto biscuits are:
- made with 5 simple ingredients,
- ready in 30 minutes
- freeze well for later
Also, you can use keto biscuits with different breakfast toppings like heavy whipped cream and keto jam.
Making The Keto Sausage Gravy
Classic sausage gravy is not keto-friendly. It contains a lot of carbs from milk and flour.
Let me show you below how to make a creamy gravy with brown breakfast sausage crumble without the carbs!
In this keto gravy recipe, I am using only low-carb keto ingredients including:
- Sausage Crumbles – I am using organic pork sausage crumbles in this recipe.
- Heavy cream – can be replaced with canned coconut cream for a dairy-free paleo option, but beware, this adds carbs and a strong coconut flavor to the gravy! Learn why heavy cream is a good keto-friendly dairy product.
- Unsweetened almond milk – you can also use half almond milk, and half chicken broth if preferred. I personally love this recipe more with only almond milk, much creamier and similar to classic sausage gravy.
- Xanthan gum – it acts as a thickener, don’t skip it, or the gravy won’t be thick and smooth. If you don’t like xanthan gum, or if you can’t tolerate this ingredient, swap heavy cream for the same amount of cream cheese. It will not thicken the sauce as much, but it still adds a great texture.
- Salt and pepper
- Garlic powder – optional, but it adds a lovely flavor to the gravy.
Browning The Meat
First, fry the sausage crumbles in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
You can add a tablespoon of olive oil if your sausage stick too much to your pan.
Cook the meat until brown and not pink, stirring often. It takes about 5 minutes.
Making The White Gravy Sauce
Now that the meat is cooked through remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon, and set it aside on a plate covered with foil while you prepare the sauce.
Pour heavy cream, unsweetened almond milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper into the pan and whisk.
Sprinkle the xanthan gum all over the pan and keep whisking gently to prevent lumps from forming.
Never add the xanthan gum all at once, or it forms lumps most of the time.
Cook, and simmer the sauce over medium-high heat until it thickens. Continue to whisk slowly to prevent the formation of lumps from the gum.
When the sauce is thick, about 2-3 minutes later, bring back the browned meat to the pan, stir, cover, and simmer on low heat to medium for 5 minutes.
This gives time to the meat to release its flavor into the gravy. Stir occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pan.
Serving Keto Gravy And Biscuits
This keto recipe for biscuits and gravy serves 10 breakfasts. One serving includes:
- One keto biscuit – the recipe makes 10 biscuits, 3 tablespoons of batter per biscuit.
- 1/3 cup keto low carb sausage gravy
Slice your keto biscuit in half, place the two pieces of biscuits on a plate, cut side facing you.
Pour 1/3 cup of sausage gravy over the biscuit and eat straight away.
You can add some fresh chopped Italian parsley on top of the gravy for flavor. It won’t add carbs.
You can store the keto gravy in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
The biscuits can also be stored in a zip-lock bag in the fridge for the same duration.
Meal prepping your keto breakfast
A great way to meal prep plenty of keto sausage biscuits and gravy for your next breakfast is to freeze them. This is how I recommend freezing your food to make each breakfast easy and delicious.
Freeze the sausage gravy in small ziplock bags or containers – 1/3 cup at a time, so you know that one bag equals one serving.
Freeze all the biscuits in a large sealed box. They are easy to remove from the box even if frozen together in the same container.
Rewarming your keto sausage gravy and biscuits
The day before, thaw the gravy in the fridge and place the biscuit on a plate on the countertop.
The next morning, slice the biscuit. You can toast each slice in a toaster to bring back some crispiness the day before serving.
Rewarm the gravy over low heat in a saucepan or simply microwave in a bowl. Serve the hot gravy over the sliced biscuits.
