Monday Munchies: Clean Biscuits and Turkey Sausage Gravy Recipe

biscuits and gravy

Makes 6 servings, 2 biscuits each.

Gravy Ingredients:

  • 6 cups milk (I prefer unsweetened almond, but since it’s so expensive, I use skim.)
  • 6 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp.  rubbed sage
  • 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Gravy Directions:

  1. Brown turkey in a large saucepan over medium heat until fully cooked. Remove from heat, and allow pan to cool slightly.
  2. Add salt, pepper, sage, ginger, and cayenne pepper to turkey and stir until it’s coated.
  3. Pour in milk.
  4. Stir in cornstarch.
  5. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until it comes to a boil.
  6. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to simmer.
  7. Let simmer until it reaches desired consistency or until biscuits are done.

Biscuit Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbs. raw honey
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Biscuit Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Cut in yogurt a little bit at a time until a crumbly mixture forms.
  4. In a small bowl, beat together egg, milk, and honey.
  5. Add it to the crumbly mixture, and combine until a soft, sticky dough forms.
  6. Drizzle vinegar over dough, and stir a few times.
  7. Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. They won’t expand, so you can place them close together, but not touching.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the tops of the biscuits turn golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before eating.

Once your biscuits and gravy are done cooking, slap two biscuits on your plate, coat them in gravy, and dig in! If you like a maple flavor with your sausage, drizzle a little pure maple syrup on top of your biscuits and gravy for a sweet treat!
