If you're missing biscuits and gravy on your gluten-free diet, you're in luck! This gluten free biscuits and gravy recipe has a creamy sausage gravy and light, fluffy biscuits, all without a single speck of gluten. You'll fall in love from the first bite!
There's absolutely nothing like warm biscuits topped with a savory sausage gravy! The biscuits absorb the rich gravy, and the whole dish sticks to your ribs. Unfortunately, most gravies use flour to thicken them, and of course, the biscuits are loaded with gluten. This gluten-free sausage gravy recipe uses your favorite gluten-free flour, and the gluten free biscuits are like pillowy clouds. You'll want to make this meal every weekend!
Biscuits and gravy is the ultimate comfort food. It's satisfying enough to be a meal on its own, but it's also wonderful served with this Easy Sausage Egg Casserole for extra protein or these amazingly fluffy Oat Flour Pancakes. I love to serve them as a special breakfast during the holidays or right before a big outing!
🥘Ingredients for Gluten-Free Biscuits and Gravy Recipe
- Ground pork sausage - Choose your favorite breakfast sausage and scramble it up for a Southern-style sausage gravy.
- Vegan butter - As it melts, the butter will create a paste with the flour mixture, thickening the country gravy to the perfect consistency.
- Gluten free flour mix - The King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten free flour blend was used in the recipe, but any flour blend will work.
- Seasoned salt & pepper - Season the gravy to taste with your favorite seasoning salt and lots of black pepper.
- Almond milk - Use any type of milk to give the gravy a creamy texture. I prefer non-dairy milk, but regular whole milk works well too.
- Gluten free biscuits - Make a big batch of these gluten-free biscuits and split them in half to soak up that homemade gravy.

🔪How to Make Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy
Just like the original recipe, this gluten-free gravy comes together so quickly and requires just a handful of simple ingredients! Bake the biscuit dough while you make the gravy to have breakfast ready right away.
STEP ONE: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, breaking up any large pieces. Cook until no longer pink.
STEP TWO: To the cooked sausage, add the butter and stir until melted.
STEP THREE: Sprinkle flour, seasoned salt and pepper over sausage and stir until completely coated.
STEP FOUR: Reduce heat to medium-low. Add milk ½ cup at a time, stirring after every addition until the desired thickness.
STEP FIVE: Stir until smooth.
STEP SIX: Serve over warm gluten free biscuits.
- Dairy butter can be used in place of the dairy free butter.
- If using regular dairy milk, more milk may be needed to achieve the desired thickness.
- This recipe is formulated to use a gluten-free flour blend specifically. Other gluten free starches or flours may require different proportions.
📖Variations in This Recipe
- Use turkey sausage: Instead of pork breakfast sausage, use your favorite turkey sausage or even chicken sausage.
- Replace the butter: For extra flavor, replace the butter with leftover bacon grease. So good!
- Vegan biscuits and gravy: Skip the sausage and use plant-based sausage crumbles instead.
- Adjust the seasonings: Feel free to use whichever spices and seasonings you prefer. This gravy would also taste great with a little garlic powder, smoked paprika, or an extra shake or two of black pepper.
- Use a different flour: All out of GF flour? Try using 1 tablespoon of cornstarch or tapioca starch.
🍽Equipment & Tools
Biscuits and gravy is such a simple recipe; you won't need much equipment to make this family favorite! (Links are affiliate links.)
- This gravy stores very well. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat on the stovetop or the microwave. You may want to add a little extra milk to thin it out.
- Gravy may be frozen for longer storage, also in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Defrost in the microwave and serve.
💭My Top Tip
Brown the meat well. The sausage will have the best texture and flavor if you brown it before making the gravy.
- Be sure to sanitize your workspace after opening the pound of ground sausage to avoid cross-contamination.
- Once cooked, the gravy should be eaten within 2 hours or refrigerated.
FAQs about GF Biscuits & Gravy
If you miss biscuits and gravy on your gluten-free diet, you're in luck! Although most recipes call for all purpose flour to bind the gravy together, you can easily use your favorite gluten-free flour mix, like King Arthur, Bob's Red Mill, or a homemade mix. These will thicken up as you cook the creamy gravy, giving you the same smooth texture you know and love.
Yes! There are so many gluten-free gums and starches that there's no reason to stop eating gravy, even if you can't have regular wheat flour. You'll just have to make your own gravy instead of buying it at the store, but that's easy. Many gravy recipes use cornstarch, which is a great alternative. You can also use your favorite GF baking blend, tapioca starch, potato starch, and even xanthan gum for low-carb biscuits and gravy. Be sure to use recipes formulated for these thickeners for best results.
The tricky part about making gluten free biscuits and gravy is getting the buttery, flaky biscuits just right. That flakiness comes from rolling out dough with cold butter, then folding and rolling it it over and over again until tiny little layers of butter form. After lots of trial and error, I've found that these are the best gluten free biscuits. They may not have the same peel-apart layers, but they're tender, fluffy, and perfect for soaking up lots of gravy.
