Hitting the spot.
Even though we live in the south, nothing quite hits the spot on a 90 degree summer evening like hot biscuits and gravy. My kids always get excited when they realize biscuits & gravy are for dinner, and I might just do a little happy dance as well… 😉
Some of our other “southern” favorites include:
- Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Corn Bread
- Hummingbird Cake
- Lacto-Fermented Rainbow Chard
- Corn-Free Cheesy Grits
- Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake
- Iced Raspberry Leaf Chia Tea
- Easy BBQ Wings
- Meatloaf Sliders
- Quick & Simple Coleslaw
Biscuits & Gravy.
This dish is usually made with ground pork, or breakfast sausage, but my family doesn’t handle pork very well, so my version uses ground beef, instead. You can feel free to use whatever meat you want.
If you’re dairy-free, this recipe works well with coconut milk, but I love to use broth in place of the milk. Though it doesn’t have the same southern taste, it really ups the nutritional value.
For spiciness, I fluctuate between using spoked paprika, red pepper flakes, or chili powder. They’re all equally delicious, depending on your heat capabilities. 🙂
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Gluten-Free Biscuits & Gravy
Free from gluten, eggs, dairy, and sugar.
- 1 recipe biscuits, such as my Flax & Buttermilk Biscuits or Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits
- 1-2 T. fat, such as coconut oil, tallow, lard, or butter
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 2 T. minced garlic
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1/4-1/2 t. ground black pepper
- 1/4 t. smoked paprika (or chili powder, for a little zing!)
- 1/2 t. Himalayan salt
- 1/2 t. oregano
- 1 T. parsley
- 1 T. starch, such as arrowroot, tapioca, or potato starch
- 1 c. milk of choice (I use homemade coconut milk) or chicken/beef broth
Prepare biscuit dough.
While the biscuits are baking, saute onions over medium heat in oil until translucent.
Add in garlic and ground meat.
Add in spices to taste.
When meat is almost cooked through, sprinkle with starch and mix well.
Pour in milk 1/3 cup at a time, stirring until thickened after each addition.
Serve hot over hot biscuits.
