Ingredients

    "Buttermilk" Biscuits
    Milk, nonfat, 2/3 cup
    Lemon juice, 2 tsp
    *Canola Oil, 3 tbsp
    Orange Juice, .5 fl oz
    *Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, unenriched, 2 cup
    Baking Powder, 2 tsp
    Salt, .5 tsp

    Turkey Sausage Gravy
    Turkey Sausage, 1/2 tube (8 oz)
    Water, tap, 2.5 cup (8 fl oz)
    *Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, unenriched, .5 cup
    Pepper, black, 4 tbsp
    Salt, 1 tsp
    Pepper, red or cayenne, 1 tsp

Directions

Start with the gravy. Place turkey sausage in saute pan and fry with 2 tbsp of pepper. (DO NOT use a nonstick pan!) You want the sausage to stick a bit to create the gravy.

Preheat oven to 400F. In a glass cup or bowl, add lemon juice to milk and let it rest for a few minutes to thicken. In a different bowl, beat together oil and orange juice with a fork.

Place flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and stir together. Add oil mixture and mix until it resembles bread crumbs. Then stir in the reserved soured milk so the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and SLIGHTLY sticky.

Place on a floured board and roll or pat to 1/2" thick and cut into 2 1/2" round biscuits and place on baking sheet. Place in oven and bake until light golden (10-12 minutes).

Right before biscuits are done finish the gravy. Make sure sausage is nice and browned. Remove sausage from pan. De-glaze pan with 2 cups water for 1 minute; then mix remaining 1/2 cup water with flour to make a rue (thin paste). Add sausage back to pan and mix in rue, remaining pepper, salt and cayenne pepper. Stir constantly until thick.

**Note: Pepper should be very prominent in the taste! Add enough to really taste it. Fresh cracked pepper is the best for this.

Take biscuits out of oven and cut in half. Add about 1/4 cup of gravy and ENJOY!!!

(You can substitute Gimme Lean Vegetarian Sausage too if you like!)

  • Haven't made this yet but from reading the recipe it seems it may be a typo for the amount of black pepper in the gravy. 4 Tablespoons is probably supposed to be Teaspoons. However, I would probably just do the pepper to taste which for me is probably around 1 - 2 teaspoons. - 7/31/14
