Southern Sausage Gravy

This gravy is definitely best served over some fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits, but go ahead and eat it with whatever your heart desires.

  • 1 lb. pork sausage spicy or mild
  • 1-2 T. butter depending on how lean/fatty your sausage is
  • 1/3 c. white rice flour
  • ¼ t. xanthan gum
  • Or 1/3 c. all purpose GF/non-GF flour instead of the above 2 ingredients
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½-1 t. pepper to taste
  • 3-4 c. milk almond milk even works great!


  1. Place pork in a skillet over medium heat. Begin cooking. If it looks like there is not much grease oozing out of the sausage, go ahead and add 2 T. butter. If your sausage is already rather fatty, only add 1 T. butter.
  2. Continue crumbling sausage and cooking over medium heat until meat is completely cooked. Add flour, xanthan gum, salt, and pepper and toss to coat. Cook for about 1 minute, or until flour has dissolved.
  3. Slowly begin adding milk, ½ cup at a time, and whisking after each addition. You want the gravy to almost completely thicken up before you add in your next ½ c. addition. Do this until the gravy reaches your desired consistency (I used 3 ½ c. almond milk.)
  4. This Southern Sausage Gravy is best served with some Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits. Enjoy!
