Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy Recipe


One of the hardest things about going gluten free is missing so many of your favorite foods. Those comfort food type recipes. The ones we have been making for years. The family recipes that our mothers and grandmothers have always made. The traditional and regional recipes that have been handed down for generations.

The comfort foods we turn to when we are sick or celebrating a holiday. Or that recipe that makes you think of your neighbor when you were a kid. We all have recipes like that. Those recipes that we long to have again, but have not been able to get just right.

For my family one of those recipes is biscuits and gravy. My husband and kids love them. They miss them. My husband remembers having biscuits and gravy often growing up. His mother and grandmother used to make them all the time. He missed them when we first went gluten free.

Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy

Now a side note about my family. We never ate biscuits and gravy growing up. Like really never. I grew up in Oregon, very far from the south and the tradition of biscuits and gravy. The first time I had biscuits and gravy was when my husband and I were dating. When I told his mother that I had never had biscuits and gravy, she immediately set to work on fixing that and served them to me.

The first few times I had them I was not overly impressed, but I have grown to really enjoy them. And I quickly learned why biscuits and gravy are so popular. They are a really easy and inexpensive meal to serve. After I got married I served them quite often because they were a very cheap meal to serve that my husband loved.

You can easily take just a little sausage meat and make it stretch by using it in biscuits and gravy. And you can even use just some bacon grease to flavor it and make it even cheaper meatless.

Biscuits and gravy ended up on our menu often and I really did miss them when we went gluten free. And since my husband and kids really missed them too, I knew I had to figure out how to make them gluten free.

I have both a gluten free biscuit recipe and a gluten free sausage gravy recipe on my site, but I recently realized that I have never posted a gluten free biscuit and gravy recipe. And yes it is pretty easy to just find a gluten free biscuit recipe and a gluten free gravy recipe and serve them together, but I wanted to be sure to share the recipes I used to make a meal of gluten free biscuits and gravy.

So here is how we eat gluten free biscuits and gravy.

I take my basic gluten free drop biscuit and we cover it in my gluten free sausage gravy.

Yes it is that easy, but it is so good.

And it makes for a really easy gluten free breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is a meal you can serve anytime. It is gluten free comfort food at it’s best!

  1. Hello, so glad I found this! When I had to go gluten free approx. A month ago, I was not happy that I was gonna have to go w/o biscuit & gravy….I’m from the South. :-) I hope I can find potato starch so I can try it this way. Thanks! BTW, I just found Bob’s 1to1 flour, do you have any bread/roll/hamburger bun recipes using this flour? I’m still learning what flours work best w/certain foods…getting expensive. I need a way to grind my own flours since I’m on a very limited income. I have read a food processer works, but all I have is a coffee bean grinder, any suggestions would be appreciated. :-) Thanks again for the recipe, can’t wait to try it….if I can find the correct ingredients. Have a Blessed Day:-)

    • Bob’s blend is my current favorite blend. I don’t think it works in everything, but it works pretty well in most things. For yeast doughs I prefer to use individual flours for the best results, although I have used Bob’s Blend. And yes gluten free baking is expensive. I do love to bake and still bake but I find that since going gluten free I bake less and less. I also try to find recipes like this brownie one that is gluten free, but doesn’t use odd ingredients. I also have a couple flourless cookie recipes on my site that you might like to try. And if you can’t find potato starch just use some of the Bob’s Blend in the gravy, the texture will be slightly different, but it will work. I hope that helps!

    Great recipe; the whole family agrees. For Paige’s comments, I use Arrowhead Mills All Purpose GF Flour. I find it is the best 1 for 1 substitute in all recipes and makes great cream gravy. I use Bob’s when the store is out of Arrowhead and as you mention it works in most recipes; but I still prefer Arrowhead Mills which I used for convenience in your recipe above. I have all of the ingredients in your recipe, so when I have more time I’ll try it as designed. Thank you for all your recipes.
