Man have I missed biscuits and gravy. Not anymore. I’ve come up with a recipe that is quick and extra delicious! You can play around with this recipe and make it your own or leave it alone and enjoy it my way. It’s a southern thing to add the breakfast sausage in the gravy so there’s no skipping this step!
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 1 (1-oz) packet dry Ranch dressing mix ( I didn’t have any so I used Flavor God ranch seasoning)
- 1-1/2 cups almond flour
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped cooked bacon (optional)
- White gravy – You can use my white gravy recipe here, just add breakfast sausage – https://wordpress.com/block-editor/post/justaketoguru.com/1094
In a microwave safe bowl, add your mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Mix well after until combined.
Once mixed, add the baking powder, ranch mix, almond flour then add your 3 beaten eggs to the melted cheeses. I put the eggs in last because the cheese is hot and you don’t want it to cook your eggs. Mix really well for several minutes until you have a nice consistent batter. It should look something like mine.
Once your dough is made, add in the crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese. These are optional but add some great flavor. Mix really good again until you have a uniform dough. This may take a few minutes as well.
For cooking, you have 2 options. You can spray a cast iron skillet and cook in it or line a cookie sheet and cook on it. I’ve done these biscuits on both. The pan cooked more even to me but the cast iron had a better flavor. Either way, scoop out dough into balls and place on pan/cast iron. This recipe should make somewhere around 11-12 biscuits. Continue making your biscuits until you exhaust all your dough.
Place the cookie sheet or cast iron in the fridge for 10 minutes. This step should not be missed. It helps set-up the biscuits. Heat your oven at 400 while you are waiting. Once your 10 minutes are up, cook at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Mine took 20. Remove and let cool for a minute or 2.
Split your biscuits and pour on the gravy. Add an egg to jazz it up a bit more. Enjoy.
