This is a healthy recipe. Ha. Okay, really it’s slightly healthy. Do you love biscuits and gravy but also love your heart and don’t want diabetes and heart disease and also want to live to be a hundred, like I do? Relax bro, you can still enjoy a somewhat healthier biscuits and gravy breakfast! Hint; This tastes amazing after a twelve-mile early morning mountain bike ride on a sunny spring morning.
A healthy recipe for biscuits and gravy? Is that possible you may be asking? It just maybe if you use chicken sausage and add a little kale! Okay, maybe it’s healthier?
Once upon a time, I was challenged to make biscuits and gravy with chicken sausage. This being a challenge as chicken sausage is low in fat and you need the fat to make the gravy. I excepted this challenge and you know what? My healthier, kaler biscuits and gravy was phenomenal!
