Biscuits in gravy has been one of the most often missed things since I became a diabetic and I have tried several different recipe hacks to make a version that was both delicious and diabetic-friendly. The traditional ones use flour and milk, which both have a bunch of carbs. This recipe has zero carbs. That’s right, zero. Not counting the water, it is only 4 ingredients. And it has the taste and consistency I learned to love before being dx’d!
Cut a 1 lb. tube of your favorite sausage in half. Crumble up in a medium size saucepan.
Brown sausage over medium heat. Make sure you get all the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Those crunchies are just bursting with flavor. Once browned, to up the fat content add 1 tbl of grass fed butter. Mix up well.
Add one tsp of Guar Gum and stir in well as you would flour. This is the thickening agent. A little of this goes a long way. Reduce heat to simmer.
In a a 2 cup measuring cup, add 1 cup purified water and 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream and stir up well. Slowly pour contents into the sauce pan, using a whisk to keep it from sticking.
Simmer until the gravy has thickened to your satisfaction. (as you refine the recipe for yourself you may want to reduce the water to make it thicken quicker. I like to thicken it slowly, allowing time for the sausage flavor to transfer and for me to fine tune the salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and immediately serve!
1/2 Lb. Sausage
1 Tbs Butter
1 Tsp. Guar gum
1 Cup HWC
1 Cup Water
Salt & Pepper to taste
