Gluten-Free Sausage Gravy

  • 1 ½ pound bulk pork sausage

  • 1 cup chopped onion (1 large)

  • ¼ cup Gluten-Free Flour Mix

  • 3 cup milk

  • Salt and black pepper

  • 2 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme

Gluten Free Flour Mix

  • 3 cup white rice flour

  • 3 cup potato starch

  • 2 cup sorghum flour

  • 4 teaspoon xanthan gum


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large bowl stir together first five ingredients (through cream of tartar). Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

  2. On a surface lightly sprinkled with additional flour mix, knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 1 inch thick. Using a floured 2 1/2-inch round or square biscuit cutter, cut out dough. Dip cutter into flour mix between cuts and reroll scraps as needed.

  3. Place dough cut-outs 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with melted butter. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Remove; cool slightly on a wire rack.

  4. Split biscuits. Top servings with Gluten-Free Sausage Gravy and, if desired, sprinkle with chives.
