Biscuits and Gravy

An easy pleaser!

1-2 lbs ground beef or pork sausage
4-5 TBSP flour
1 1/2 - 2 cups milk
chili powder
*1/2 chopped onion (optional)
rolls or biscuits of your choice

Cook your ground meat and set aside (reserving drippings in the pan if using pork). If using onion, saute over medium heat and remove to cooked meat.
Using either the pork drippings or 3-4 TBSP butter, heat in pan and mix with flour. Heat until bubbly and add milk. Stir briefly and let simmer. As it starts to thicken stir more frequently. Season with salt and pepper. When it reaches your desired consistency add the meat and onion. Heat through.
Serve over sourdough biscuits, croissants, dinner rolls or chicken fried steak. Top with chili powder.

**Allergy-free substitutions:
Flour - all purpose gluten free flour
Butter - smart balance or bacon grease
Milk - So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut milk
Serve over Gluten Free Bisquik biscuits or chicken fried steak

You will need to use extra butter and flour with the same amount of milk to get a good thickness to the gravy. Make sure your flour is throughly mixed and bubbling with the butter. Because of the lack of fat in the dairy free milk the texture is not quite as smooth. I also use cayenne cause it's my favorite!
