Begin by making the buttermilk biscuits according to these instructions. Once the biscuits are in the oven, start making the gravy.
Break apart the sausage into small pieces and add to a heavy bottom pan set over medium-high heat. I recommend using a cast iron skillet. Cook the sausage for 3-5 minutes, until it is brown on all sides. The time will depend on the type of vegan sausage you use.
Slowly add the flour, stirring occasionally, until the flour is completely absorbed into the sausage. Turn the heat to medium-low and slowly add the non-dairy milk, stirring constantly. Stir for 5-10 minutes until the gravy begins to be noticeably thicker. It should clear the bottom of the skillet when stirred. Once they gravy has reached your desired thickness, remove from heat. Note: if your gravy is too thick, you can add an additional ¼ to ½ cup of milk.
Remove from heat and serve immediately over warm biscuits.
Serving and Storing – Serve these biscuits and gravy fresh and warm. I love serving these with other breakfast items or with a simple fruit cup. You can also eat these for dinner or lunch with roasted veggies on the side. Store the biscuits and gravy separately. Place the biscuits in an airtight container or bag and store for up to 5 days on the counter. To store the gravy, place it in a separate, airtight container. Place the container in the fridge for about 4 to 5 days.
Reheating – You can warm biscuits back up easily in either the microwave for 30 seconds with a damp paper towel over them to prevent drying them out. Or you can place them in a warm oven for a few minutes until they are warmed through. For the gravy, you can reheat in a small pot on the stovetop. Turn the burner on a low to medium heat and stir some as it reheats. You could also place in the gravy in the microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes or until warmed through.
Make in Advance - Make the biscuits ahead of time to save time. You could also use leftovers from the night before, like if you make these biscuits to serve alongside this savory Vegan Meatloaf, you can save the remaining biscuits for an easy breakfast.
