Quick and Easy Keto Biscuits and Gravy

One of my very favorite breakfast meals on planet earth is biscuits and gravy.

Seriously though, every year for my birthday my mom would ask me what I wanted for my birthday breakfast and I'd most often say "biscuits and gravy".

After having been in Croatia for a few years, I went back to the States to visit and when my mom asked, "What do you want for breakfast?"

I'll be you can't guess the answer.

Okay - you guessed.

Biscuits and gravy.

But here's the thing: a few years ago, biscuits just didn't taste the same.

Actually, I don't think it was the taste as much as I knew what they'd do to my body.

Clump all up in the pit of my stomach and sit there like Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, OR.

Imagine my joy when I discovered that I could make a keto version of biscuits and gravy that didn't require a lot of work...

because, let's face it, if it's complicated, requires a lot of steps, and dirties up too many dishes, I ain't makin' it. 

Also, the biscuits do not turn into giant rocks and sit in the pit of my stomach.

WIN!





Quick and Easy Keto Biscuits and Gravy

Let's start with the biscuit.

I make one mug biscuit and it suffices for one serving. Seriously though - do not make more than one. Not only will you go over on your carbs, but you will also find you don't need more than one.

Mug biscuit

1 TB butter melted in a mug
2 TB coconut flour
1 egg beaten
1 1/2 TB Heavy Whipping Cream
1 TB water coconut flour absorbs. A lot. So add more if you feel you need to.
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch salt

Cook in microwave for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes.

You'll need to watch it the first time to see how quickly your microwave will cook the biscuit. If it's still not done, just return to the microwave for another 20-30 seconds.

Turn on to plate and slice into disks

Creamy Breakfast Gravy

Using my Keto Maple Breakfast Sausage recipe here, cook up some sausage....or bacon Whatever your wish

Add in 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and stir. Do not let boil or it will curdle

Sprinkle in 1/8 teaspoon of psylium husk powder and stir. This will help to thicken the gravy.

Note: Start with just 1/8 teaspoon and let thicken. If you feel you need more, sprinkle in more 1/8 teaspoon at a time. But you don't want too much of it, or it turns into the consistency of that slime-stuff your kids play with!

Salt and pepper to taste.

Pour gravy over biscuit and dig in!
