Gravy for Biscuits

We’ve really been doing a lot of breakfast for dinner lately, but I don’t mind because we don’t usually have a chance to have special breakfasts for breakfast. We love biscuits and gravy in our house, it’s filling and tasty! If you left out the sausage mixture you could use the gravy for just about anything else you would like.

The nutritional values don’t include the biscuits because there is such a variety of them you could use. You don’t even have to use biscuits! You could use toast, bread, or even pour it over potatoes.

12 oz reduced fat ground pork sausage
1 cup chopped onions
3 cloved minced garlic
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups low sodium beef broth

In a large saute pan, cook the onions, garlic and sausage together until the sausage is no longer pink. Remove from the pan and set aside. Melt the butter in the same pan and mix in the flour, whisk in the beef broth and let it come to a boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Add the sausage mixture back in and let it cook for a few more minutes. Serve over biscuits or toast.

  7. I absolutely love biscuits and gravy! Great idea to use beef broth. Thanks for sharing on Thursdays Treasures.

    • I like using broth instead of water for most recipes because it gives a lot of flavor without adding a whole lot of other stuff, especially if you use the low sodium type.
      Thanks for stopping by! I’ve been following you on Facebook and love your posts!
