Ingredients That’ll Make Your Mouth Water:

For the Gluten-Free Biscuits:

  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour blend (make sure it’s a good one that doesn’t taste like cardboard)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (to give those biscuits a fluffy lift)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (because we’re serious about fluffiness)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (to balance out all that savory goodness)
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter (cut into small cubes, because butter makes everything better)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or dairy-free alternative if you swing that way)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (for a touch of sweetness)

For the Creamy Gravy:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (because gravy without butter is like a day without sunshine)
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (to thicken things up)
  • 2 cups milk (or dairy-free alternative if you prefer)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (because seasoning is the key to gravy greatness)
  • Cooked breakfast sausage (optional, but highly recommended for that classic biscuits and gravy flavor)

Directions:

Making the Gluten-Free Biscuits:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. We’re about to make some biscuit magic happen!
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined. This is where the biscuit party starts.
  3. Add the cold butter cubes to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Think of it as a biscuit treasure hunt!
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and honey until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms. Don’t overmix, or your biscuits might end up tough. We want them light and fluffy like a biscuit cloud!
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about an inch apart. You can make them as big or as small as you like – it’s your biscuit kingdom!
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and puffed up to biscuit perfection. Keep an eye on them, because nobody likes burnt biscuits!
  7. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before digging in. Trust me, the wait will be worth it!

Whipping Up the Creamy Gravy:

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, sprinkle in the gluten-free flour and whisk constantly until it forms a smooth paste. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, to remove any raw flour taste.
  2. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the gravy thickens to your desired consistency. This might take around 5-7 minutes, so be patient – good things come to those who wait!
  3. Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste. If you’re feeling fancy, you can also stir in some cooked breakfast sausage for that classic biscuits and gravy flavor. Go ahead, live a little!

Serving Up the Deliciousness:

Once your biscuits are golden brown and your gravy is thick and creamy, it’s time to assemble the ultimate gluten-free biscuits and gravy feast. Split those fluffy biscuits in half, smother them with generous spoonfuls of creamy gravy, and prepare to be transported to comfort food heaven. It’s a dish that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning taste buds, and the fact that it’s gluten-free and budget-friendly makes it even more irresistible. So go ahead, dig in, and enjoy every delicious bite of this frugal feast!
