Low Carb Biscuits and Gravy

Low Carb Biscuits and Gravy

Posted by Jessica Parker on Aug 21st 2019

If you love Biscuits and Gravy but are avoiding them because of added carbs, this is a must try for you!

There are a ton of low carb/Keto Biscuits and Gravy recipes out there and after trying some and tweaking things this is what we came up with and LOVE!

BISCUITS:

1.5 cups almond flour

1/4 cup sour cream, full fat

1 egg

2 Tbsp butter (from grass fed cows)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup shredded mozzarella

Directions for biscuits:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix all ingredients, aside from mozzarella, well then gently add the mozzarella.

Drop 12 biscuits onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden.

GRAVY:

1 lb pasture raised ground pork (we used the breakfast flavor)

1-2 tsp xanthan gum

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup chicken broth

Salt & pepper to taste

Directions for Gravy:

In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook ground pork until it is no longer pink, season with desired amount of salt and pepper scoop into a separate bowl and set aside.

In that same saucepan with leftover pork fat, add the heavy whipping cream and whisk in the xanthan gum. After a few minutes on medium heat and whisking, add the broth. Keep whisking before you add more xanthan gum; it will take several minutes to start to thicken.

*I like my gravy thicker with more pork. You can absolutely choose to add more heavy whipping cream and/or broth make more gravy and a thinner consistency!

Once your gravy starts to thicken up, add the cooked pork into the gravy and cook for several more minutes.

This recipe will absolutely fit into a ketogenic diet; just beware of eating too many things with Almond Flour as those things tend to go down pretty easily and, although low carb, they do add up fast!
