KetoNurses’ Biscuits & Gravy

Biscuits & Gravy with Chopped Steak

Biscuits:

1/3 cup almond flour

¾ cup grated mozzarella cheese

1 Tbsp coconut flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 egg

2 ½ Tbsp melted butter

Pre-heat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients together in small bowl. I use a fork for easy mixing.

Shape into 4 evenly-sized balls and place on parchment-lined baking pan.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Watch bottoms carefully – the bottoms will brown much faster than tops; tops will NOT brown much at all & will still be done.

Do you have a larger crew to bake for? Here’s the recipe for making about 15-16 biscuits:

1.5 – 2 cups almond flour, NOT meal

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

1 Tbsp coconut flour

1.5 tsp baking powder

3-4 eggs, well-beaten

6 TBSP melted/softened butter

C=5     P=8     F=18        PER BISCUIT

 Gravy:

¼ – ½ pound sugar-free sausage (or leftover steak, chicken, or chops from a recent supper – my fave)

2 Tbsp. grass-fed butter (optional)

½ cup heavy cream

Black pepper to taste

While biscuits bake:

Brown ¼ – ½ pound of sugar-free sausage in skillet and remove from pan. Do NOT drain fats off.

If using leftover meat, you will need the butter for heating/browning it.

In same skillet as above, and after removing cooked meat, add 3 Tbsp grass-fed butter & allow to melt over low or medium-low heat. Butter should NOT sizzle, but just melt.

Pour ½ cup heavy cream into melted butter; using whisk, stir pretty constantly.  Add pepper to taste.  Simmer and stir for about 3-5 minutes, until cream just begins to thicken.

Add the previously cooked/heated meat and stir in.

Serve over open baked biscuits.
