Better For You Biscuits and Gravy

Lower sodium.  Lower fat.  No preservatives.

1lb ground beef
1/4 cup gluten free baking mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup plain Soymilk

Brown the ground beef in a skillet.  Add salt and pepper to taste and other spices if you can have them (oregano, sage).

Sprinkle the baking mix over the meat and stir to combine and coat.  Add the Soymilk and water.  Heat until just bubbling, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat immediately.

Serve over biscuits or mashed potatoes.

I've been adding a little bit of mashed potato flakes to my biscuit dry ingredients.  They are lighter and crispier!


Preheat oven to 450.

2 cups gluten free baking mix
1/4 cup mashed potato flakes, Whole Foods brand
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Dash of salt
1/4 cup Earth Balance margarine
3/4 - 1 cup Soymilk

Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Cut the margarine in with a fork or pastry cutter.  Add the milk and stir until moistened.  Add a little more Soymilk if necessary.

Drop by tablespoon full onto a baking sheet.  Bake for 12 mimutes.  Serve warm.
