Dairy Free Sausage Gravy

Dairy Free Sausage Gravy yes please!  Sausage gravy is such a Southern comfort food. It’s Classic and really so easy to make. I can’t use or drink real milk, and had tested so many options until I found the perfect one. Now this Dairy Free Sausage Gravy doesn’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.

When the cooler weather rolls in, it is time for a classic comfort food. I decided to give Ripple Milk a try and it was a big hit!

Here is what you need 

1 lb Sausage 

1/4 cup Flour 



3-4 cups of Ripple milk 


Cool sausage, you can tear into pieces or break apart with your spatula which is what I do. Once sausage is browned turn to medium heat and take 1/4 cup of flour and add half the cup to the pan until the sausage has absorbed it, then add the remaining  half. 

Once the flour has mixed in well add in milk 1 cup at a time. Start with just 3 Cups, turn to medium high heat. Let it come to a boil and turn to medium low. Stirring every few minutes. 

Once it starts to thicken you will be able to tell if you need more milk. Sometimes I may need a little more but not the cup. I’ve noticed it differs with different brands of sausage sometimes and I’m sure with dog cook tops as well. 

Add in  1/3 tsp salt and 2 tsp pepper. You may need more pepper later to taste depending on how peppery you like your gravy. 

Once it’s simmered for about 25 min and thickened to your liking it is ready to serve. 

I don’t make homemade biscuits. We really like to use the Grands ones from the freezer section. I throw them in to cook when the gravy is thickening. This typically serves us 2 different meals so those biscuits we can make fresh, and not waste any. 

Top your biscuits with the gravy and enjoy!

Reheat Tip: If you save some for leftovers add a little of the Ripple Milk before you heat it up as it thickens a lot in the fridge but it’s great left over.

    The ingredients list for this gravy recipe is pretty simple: Sausage, gluten free flour, salt and pepper, and milk. Be sure all your ingredients are gluten free, especially the sausage (we used Jimmy Dean).
