CHEF GREG'S SAUSAGE GRAVY
1 pound pork sausage
1/4 cup Carbquik, 1 ounce
1 1/2 cups Carb Countdown whole milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped, optional
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional
Brown the sausage in a large pot; do not drain the fat. Sprinkle the Carbquik over the sausage; stir to blend until no dry bits of Carbquik remain. Add the milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until the sauce is thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the parsley, if desired. Serve over hot Country-Style Baking Powder Biscuits (not included in carb counts - see recipe below).
Makes 4-6 servings or about 2 1/2 cups

I had to add xanthan gum to the gravy because the Carbquik didn't thicken it at all. I added a little too much xanthan gum, 3/4 teaspoons, and had to thin it down with a little water. I seasoned mine with a little Spicy Seasoning Salt. This tasted ok, but not quite like I remember that regular sausage gravy tasted. That was partly due to the strong sour taste of the biscuits. Parsley wasn't called for in Chef Greg's original recipe, but I always added that to mine to give it a little color.
