Recipe Variations

  • Sausage links (with or without casings) if you do not have bulk sausage. This recipe uses bulk sausage, which is sold in packages or rolls like ground beef. You can remove the casings by slicing down a link and peeling away the casing. You can then cook them and crumble them as they cook.
  • Other milk types – Whole milk has the highest richness and thickens well, but 2% will also work. It will take a little longer to thicken. This recipe has not been tested with 1%, skim, or non-dairy milk products.
  • Texture – We prefer our sausage crumbled in this gravy, but you may make yours as textured as you’d like! As the sausage cooks, break it up into whatever size you like.
  • Seasonings – You can keep it simple with salt, pepper, and thyme, but if you want to add your own flavor, you should. The addition of paprika, smoked paprika, cayenne, sage, rosemary, etc., would be lovely.
  • Fresh herbs – if you want to add any fresh herbs to this recipe, I suggest adding them towards the end of cooking, so they keep their fresh flavor.

How Can I Thicken My Pioneer Woman Gravy Without Flour?

You can use either cornstarch or arrowroot in order to thicken your Pioneer woman gravy, both of them are gluten-free options, however, for every cup of liquid in this recipe you want to add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to an equal part of water then mix and pour your slurry into the pot and stir continuously over high heat until the cornstarch is fully incorporated and your Pioneer woman gravy begins to thicken.

How To Make The Pioneer woman Biscuits and gravy?

Making The Biscuits:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a food processor (or large bowel).
  3. Then, add the butter pieces and pulse until your butter is completely melted (or use a pastry cutter if using a bowl) While pulsing (or stirring), drizzle in buttermilk until dough just comes together and is no longer crumbly.
  4. Place clumps on two baking sheets, then bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. (Optional: Brush the biscuits with melted butter when they come out of the oven.)

Making The Sausage Gravy:

  1. Using your fingers, tear small sausage pieces and add them in a single layer to a heavy skillet.
  2. Brown the sausage over medium-high heat until it is no longer pink, then reduce the heat to medium-low.
  3. Combine half the flour and stir so that the sausage soaks it all up, then add a little more until just before the sausage looks too dry.
  4. Mix it around and cook it for another minute or so, then pour in the milk, stirring constantly.
  5. Stir the gravy frequently until it thickens which will take about 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Now you want to season your gravy with both salt and pepper and continue to cook it until it is very thick and luscious. In case it gets too thick too soon, add 1/2 cup of milk or more as needed, and don’t forget to adjust seasonings as necessary.
  7. Finally, Spoon your sausage gravy over warm biscuits and serve immediately!

  4. Stir the gravy vigorously to combine it again if it has separated.

Reheating Notes:

  • Add extra stock or milk if the gravy is too thick and needs thinning out.
  • If the gravy seems too thin, you can add a cornstarch slurry to help thicken it (you will have to bring it to a boil before the cornstarch takes effect).
  • If you have lots of gravy to reheat, increase the heat to a medium setting to speed up the process.

How To Reheat My Pioneer Woman Biscuits?

All you need is a damp paper towel to keep your biscuits moist and flaky.

To reheat your Pioneer Woman Biscuits In The Microwave:

  1. Wrap each biscuit individually in a damp paper towel, it should be moist but not dripping.
  2. Put the wrapped biscuits on a microwave-safe plate or container and leave them uncovered.
  3. Microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute on the medium setting.
  4. Check to see if your Pioneer Woman Biscuits are hot enough, in case they need more heating, place them back in the microwave for another 15 seconds, and repeat as needed.
  5. Unwrap and serve warm.

Recipe Tips

  • The biscuits should be prepared first (but not baked yet), the gravy should be started, and then the biscuits should be baked while the gravy is thickening up. This way, you can stir the gravy frequently, which is hard to do when your hands are covered with flour and dough.
  • Make sure the pan is hot by adding a few drops of water. When the drops evaporate on contact, the pan is ready.
  • If You are not a fan of the nutmeg flavor in this gravy, omit it and use regular pork breakfast sausage instead of the sage-flavored variety.
