Here is a simple, quick, and hearty recipe that will put a smile on any face. Sausage gravy is a traditional Southern breakfast dish in the United States. Though this is the classic Southern sausage gravy, we have updated it by exchanging the cornstarch or flour for xanthan gum. Xanthan is a gum produced by fermentation and used as a food binder or stabilizer. It is an important ingredient in gluten-free recipes and is primarily used in many types of commercial foods from ice cream to salad dressings. The xanthan gum thickens the sauce and keeps it from separating without altering the flavor. 

Cook Time: 10 mins   Yield: 4 servings

 Ingredients:

  • 1 pound (453.5 g) breakfast sausage
  • 2 cups (473.2 ml) of whole milk
  • ½ cup (118.3 ml) of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon (14.8 ml) of Tabasco sauce
  • ½ teaspoon (7.29 ml) Cape Crystal Brands xanthan gum
  • ¼ (3.7) teaspoon ground black pepper

 

Directions:

Step 1. Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high.

Step 2. Add the sausage and cook.

Step 7. Continue cooking, stirring, until gravy comes to a boil.

Step 8. Stir in ground black pepper.

Step 9. Then serve immediately.
