Thread: Biscuits and sausage and gravy? No!

    Default Biscuits and sausage and gravy? No!

    I did a stupid thing this morning. Decided to use up some food that I had.
    Some time back I bought a box of Jimmy Dean sausage and biscuits. Using a
    coupon and a doubler it was cheap.

    More recently I bought a couple of cans of Libby's sausage gravy at Big
    Lots.

    This morning I nuked a couple of the little biscuit sandwiches and covered
    them in gravy. Well not only were they very hard to eat but it was too much
    sausage for me. I do have a few plain biscuits in the freezer. Will just
    use those instead.

    So while I was thinking that they sausage gravy over sausage might make a
    nice lower carb meal, now I'm thinking not.

    The spices were fine and it wasn't overly greasy.

    When pan-frying sausages I always pour some of the fat out, unless I need it
    for something else. Sometimes I use that fat as the base for a celery -
    carrot - onion soffritto, works good

    Julie,

    You've flipped my "Dreaming Up Disaster" switch back ON, in the form of a
    few frozen White Castle cheeseburgers, nuked then drowned in sausage
    gravy!

    I'm mystically able to make scratch sausage gravy.

    Thanks!

    Musical Thanks!:

    The last few times I've eaten at Denny's, I've gotten the biscuit and
    gravy breakfast. It's one of the few places where I can get this famous
    dish on this rock and it's only 2 bucks and the serving size is about
    right for me. Unfortunately, the biscuit is on the pasty side but still
    I find it to be one of the more appealing dishes on the menu.

    Not even. The gravy is half flour. It is not at all low carb.

    One could reduce the carbs by using starch instead of flour, it works
    wonderfully with custard. I never tried it on gravy but why shouldn't it
    work?

    That is NOT the way to make biscuits and sausage gravy. Sheesh. Granted, I
    am no biscuit maker so I do buy the frozen (MaryB's brand) biscuits (I
    understand Pillsbury makes them, too). To make sausage gravy you brown bulk
    breakfast sausage, reserve at least 2 Tbs. of the drippings, stir in an
    equal amount of flour as if you're making a white sauce. Add milk or cream
    and stir the sausage back in. Season with lots of pepper. I doubt you'd
    like it. And I see nothing low-carb biscuits & gravy.

    A biscuit and gravy low carb? Um.....no, extemely high carb....and
    high fat, a very bad combination.

    We eat at Elmer's once in a while and this place has really decent
    food. However, I had the biscuits and gravy a week or so ago and I was
    really surprised. this time around the biscuits were a bit hard but
    the gravy was good.

    Flour is a starch, that's why it's used. And most starches are up to
    100% carbs.

    Very high glycemic index carbs. They turn into glucose in the stomach
    almost immediately upon ingestion.

    Sounds like my kind of place. Unfortunately, the nearest one is about a
    couple of thousand miles away. We were in Washington state about a year
    ago and the little diner by the motel we were staying at served some
    pretty hearty breakfasts. Our breakfasts is lite fare in comparison. I
    guess you guys need the extra calories just to keep warm. The toast they
    served was a thick slab made by a small bakery down the road. How great
    is that? Pretty great.

    You want lower carbs out of biscuits and gravy? Not gonna happen, at least
    not anything edible.

    Sausage gravy comes in a can? Barf!

    That should be illegal.
