This Paleo & Whole30 Sausage Breakfast Gravy is made using almond milk, broth, coconut cream, and thickened with arrowroot flour for a gluten-free and dairy-free breakfast of champions! Serve over biscuits or potatoes for maximum comfort food status!
1 pound compliant breakfast seasoned ground pork sausage (I use ButcherBox)
1 + 1/2 cups broth (chicken or beef)
1/2 cupcoconut cream (the thick part in a can of whole fat coconut milk)
1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
1 tablespoonghee (clarified butter)
1 teaspoondried rosemary
1 teaspoondried basil
1 teaspoongarlic powder
1/2 teaspoondried thyme
1/4 teaspoon each salt & pepper
2 tablespoonsarrowroot starch/flour + 2 tablespoons water mixed together to make a slurry (can sub cornstarch if not Whole30)
In a Dutch oven or deep skillet, brown the ground pork breakfast sausage over medium heat, using a wooden spoon or other utensil to break the meat apart into tiny bits as it cooks. Once the sausage is cooked through, remove it from the pan into a bowl and drain the excess grease from the pan. (If using unseasoned pork sausage, add a little thyme, ground sage, salt & pepper during this step. Unseasoned is fine but the gravy will taste less “breakfasty”.)
Place the same pan back over medium heat, and add broth, coconut cream, almond milk, ghee, and all remaining spices (rosemary, basil, garlic powder, thyme, salt & pepper). Whisk well to combine, lower heat and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes.
Slowly whisk in the arrowroot flour + water slurry, adding a little at a time and then whisking, until the slurry is gone. Continue whisking frequently while the gravy thickens, about 3 minutes.
Return the cooked pork sausage to the pan and stir to combine with the gravy. If the gravy is too thick, add 1/3 cup water and whisk. If the gravy is too thin, add 1/2 tablespoon additional arrowroot starch and whisk for an addition 2-3 minutes.
Serve with roasted potatoes, avocado and eggs for Whole30, biscuits or toast if not Whole30. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy within 4 days.
