O.M.G. You guy, you guys, you guys... I'll let you just take all of that gorgeousness in right there for a moment.
Okay. So. Not only are these biscuits and gravy low-carb and gluten-free, but I have to say that this was some of the best damn biscuits and gravy that I've ever put in my mouth. And those are big words coming from a southern girl.
With everything that's been going on here around Austin lately, I needed some good southern comfort food in a bad way this week. I think all of us here did. And there isn't much more southern or comforting than a good plate of biscuits and gravy.
For the biscuits, I was more than a little nervous. I've tried my hand at gluten-free 'bread' in the past and to say that it didn't work out as expected would be a vast understatement. These though? They were easy to make and tasted great too! You'll just want to be mindful not to over mix the batter. Mine was -right- on the edge of being over mixed.
The gravy? It's rich. I'm not going to lie. It's rich and decadent and so sooo creamy. It really ended up being a perfect consistency. Sometimes I feel like a white gravy is quick to become too thick. This one though stays perfectly pourable and just thick enough to stick to the biscuits and even soak in a little.
One of the best parts about these biscuits and gravy is that even if you aren't looking for a low-carb or gluten-free meal, it's still easy to make and super SUPER delicious.
If you're trying to make this keto-friendly you can swap out the turkey sausage for an organic pork breakfast sausage. (I say organic because I know most people doing the keto diet are looking to limit additives, which supposedly can be found more-so in pork items than other meats.)
