Best Sausage Gravy For Keto

  • Thick and creamy like real gravy should be
  • Perfect with pork chops, chicken or biscuits
  • Super quick recipe that’s ready in 15 minutes

How To Make Keto Sausage Gravy

  1. First, you want to start with a pan on medium high heat. Pan should be hot enough to render the fat but not so hot it begins to burn the sausage. Have ingredients on the side.
  2. Notice, while sausage is cooking you don’t want to cook all the way through. The main objective is to render fat down to use for the keto gravy.
  3. Next, toss in onions. If there isn’t much fat in pan add a little oil.
  4. Pour in chicken broth and lower heat to simmer. Then, immediately add in heavy cream.
  5. Continue cooking everything together. At this point toss in your salt and pepper.
  6. Normally, this takes about 5-10 minutes for onions to cook down and the sausage cooks through. Turn the heat off and proceed.
  7. Next, make sure that the sausage gravy isn’t bubbling hot or boiling. Pour in arrowroot and water mixture then follow behind with xanthan gum.
  8. Continue stirring to give everything time to for through and thicken the sauce. Serve!

Helpful Recipe Tip

  • Do you have to use arrowroot starch/flour? No, but I recommend it. You can solely use the xanthan gum but the consistency will be different. I found mixing the two produced a better final result.
  • Beef broth can be used but chicken broth will give the most authentic flavor. I prefer chicken bone broth because the collagen helps with thickening.
