Sausage Gravy- Just Like Grandma Used To Make But Low Carb
Two things southerners love and that is biscuits and gravy. It is almost considered blasphemy to mess with a comfort food recipe like this, but I did. I had too. My granny’s recipe wouldn’t cut it with our new low carb way of eating and I coudln’t stand the thought of never eating it again.
Enter Xanthan Gum
Xanthan Gum is a polysaccharide with a wide variety of uses, including as a common food additive. It is a powerful thickening agent, and also has uses as a stabilizer to prevent ingredients from separating.
Now that I had a low carb and keto-friendly thickening agent, would my coveted sausage gravy taste the same? The answer is an astounding YES.
The best part about this recipe? It only uses 3 ingredients. That’s right 3. Not 5 or 10, just 3 ingredients standing between you and this amazing low carb sausage gravy.
