Introduction

Growing up in the South, sausage gravy was a staple on our breakfast table, so I wanted to create a healthier version--with a secret ingredient. Growing up in the South, sausage gravy was a staple on our breakfast table, so I wanted to create a healthier version--with a secret ingredient.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 large onion, chopped
    2 cups (about 8 ounces) mushrooms, chopped*
    2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon dried sage
    1 1/2 cups skim milk


    * Use baby bella or white button mushrooms.

Tips

My version of Buttermilk Biscuits and Sausage Gravy has about 1/2 the fat and less than 10% of the sodium of a restaurant version of biscuits and gravy!


Directions

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Add the onions and turn the heat to medium-high. After 2 minutes, add the mushrooms, stirring well. Once the mushrooms are dark brown in color, 3-4 minutes later, add the flour and stir constantly for one minute. Add the spices, then slowly pour in the milk. Stir until a smooth sauce forms, then simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes 2 cups, 1/2 cup per serving.

    I so enjoy reading comments about a gravy not being as advertised when the sausage is in quotes - most of us understand that when it's written "sausage" that its faux. . . .anyway, thanks for the LOL moments!

    couldn't you also use the "vegetarian" crumbles? I find they taste and have the texture of regular sausage or hamburger. My husband can't tell the difference. - 4/17/12

    Yes, you could use veggie crumbles.

    I am so disappointed. I was so excited to see a recipe for a healthy version sausage gravy but this is not sausage gravy, there is no sausage in the recipe or even anything resembling sausage. You can't call it sausage gravy when there is no sausage in the recipe, its more like vegetarian gravy. - 9/13/12

    I modified this using turkey sausage and unsweetened almond milk; no sage at all. It was yummy! - 9/23/12

    Can't rate this yet, but I love the substitution esp/ w/ mushroom. I laughed when I read the complaints because it wasn't a month ago you posted a peanut butter cookie recipe and people here complained it used actual peanut butter and sugar.
    I pick and choose, but your recipes have improved my lif - 9/13/12
