Reduced Fat Biscuits and Sausage Gravy Recipe

I love biscuits with sausage gravy on top of them but don’t like to make them very often because of the amount of fat in the sausage gravy. When I saw this Reduced Fat Biscuits and Sausage Gravy Recipe I was a little reluctant to try it because I just couldn’t visualize the taste even being close to the same. To my surprise this Reduced Fat Biscuits and Sausage Gravy Recipe was delicious; it was so good I could hardly tell the difference, and my wife said it was as good as the original and, maybe even better. Instead of making my own biscuits for this recipe I used Pillsbury Grands. If you would rather make your own biscuits just use your favorite biscuit recipe. Don’t cut corners by using store bought sausage, the home sausage recipe in this recipe is as good as it gets.

If you like sausage and biscuits, but want to get away from the fat, give this Reduced Fat Biscuits and Sausage Gravy Recipe a try. Adapted from Cooks Country Magazine.
