Paleo Biscuits & Gravy

I was a pretty picky eater growing up.  For many foods I would decide that I "didn't like that", without ever even trying it.  Biscuits & gravy was one of those dishes I decided sounded gross and did not want to try....

Fast forward 15 years & I'm living with the man of my dreams, whose all-time favorite pre-Paleo breakfast was biscuits & gravy.  After creating amazing Paleo Drop Biscuits, a "biscuits & gravy" dish was the next logical step.  So I made it, had Dathan do all of the taste testing, ate it begrudgingly..... and fell in love.

The moral of the story is:  try this.  Whether you are Paleo or don't care about healthy eating; love sausage gravy or loathe it; you have got to try this.  It's a guaranteed success!

PS:  If you're feeling hesitant about a coconut milk base.... don't!  You won't taste any coconut flavor.


  • 1 recipe Paleo Drop Biscuits (bake 'em while you make the gravy)
  • 1 lb pork breakfast sausage
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • salt & pepper


  1. Bake a batch of drop biscuits according to the recipe.  While they are baking...
  2. Remove casings from your sausage, and cook in a skillet until crumbled & no longer pink.  Transfer the sausage to a separate bowl, leaving the rendered fat in the pan.
  3. Leave your skillet on medium heat, and add the coconut flour to the fat-- mixing with a wooden spoon until it looks like a thickened paste.
  4. Add the coconut milk about 1 cup at a time, whisking as you pour.  Continue whisking as it bubbles & thickens to your liking.  
  5. Once it reaches the thickness you prefer, add salt & plenty of black pepper.
  6. Stir in the cooked sausage, and pour over hot biscuits.
  7. Serve & enjoy!!
