Biscuits and Sausage Gravy (Dairy Free)

This year on Valentine's Day I was at a loss for what to get the Hubs. (P.S. Yes, this is post left over from Valentine's Day, that is how much time I have for blogging this semester, it makes me sad). I considered the usual suspects (good movie by the way) Starbucks card, pecan pie, chocolate chip cookies... see a food theme? Then I remembered the one dish he's been bugging me to make him for months, but always sounded too heavy - Biscuits and Gravy.

I looked up a couple recipes online and most people said to buy pre-made biscuits... normally I would above that, but I thought - if I'm going to make this on Valentine's Day it needs to be breakfast and there is no way I'm not sleeping in. Pre-made biscuits it is!

Looks like biscuits and mush on a plate, but it was tasty mush.

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
adapted from this recipe by The Pioneer Woman

1 pound Jimmy Deans Reduced Fat Sausage Roll
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups almond milk (original flavor)
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
Salt and black pepper to taste
8 prepared biscuits

1 - Prepare biscuits

2 - Cook sausage with directions on Jimmy Dean package. Don't worry if you don't have time to freeze the package for 10 mins to make them easier to slice. I didn't and just reformed the meat into circles with my fingers. *You will need to add a tiny bit of vegetable oil or margarine, because they are reduced fat you wont get any grease to use for the gravy... create your own.

3 - When fully cooked remove the sausage onto a paper towel and get ready for gravy time.

4 - Using the leftover grease in your pan, over low to medium heat, slowly add the flour and whisk to make smooth.

5 - Let that deepen in color (about 2 1/2 - 3 mins) and throw in little pieces of sausage.

6 - Add maple syrup

7 - Add almond milk, whisk as you add it.

8 - Add salt and pepper to taste.

9 - Cut biscuits in half, place cut side up and spoon gravy over top.

10 - Serve next to sausage and enjoy :)
