Savory waffles and Sausage gravy is a flavorful, filling brunch or light dinner. All biscuit and sausage gravy lovers, this one is for you!
My sons, son in laws, and husband all LOVE biscuits and gravy. I had never made sausage gravy….until tonight! I just knew we would love it. Too much! I asked my son in law Nathan what he did when he makes this tasty man food, and then I went for it! You see, I had this bulk sausage and some waffles left over from breakfast…and Dave and I were outside all day working in the garden. Time just got away from me! So I decided to give my poor, sick hubby a treat,(He is on week two of a very nasty cold) this made a fast easy dinner for my poor, tired self. We love breakfast for dinner occasionally. This is a winner!
I have resisted making savory waffles and gravy over the years, in self defense. My calorie expenditure never equals a regular repeat of this delicious high carb and fat meal. This is definitely farmer food. Great for a work party where lots of calories are needed to get you through the day. Dave expends many, many calories working at his job, and around here…and then there is me. So I’m going for self restraint with this meal. But it is so good!
Here is what I came up with. If you would rather use your favorite biscuits to provide a base for this delicious gravy, have at it. I’m using my Crispy Light Waffles recipe. They are more savory than sweet, although they are great for breakfast with maple syrup and fresh fruit too! These waffles are low sugar so they lend themselves very well to this savory, meaty gravy. We like a little zip in our meal, so I added some chipotle seasoning, fresh garlic and onions out of the garden, to our mild bulk Italian sausage. It came out fantastic!
Savory Waffles and gravy makes a great light meal with a salad or other side. Brunch for dinner? Works for me! We were so tired; we just had the waffles and gravy …and Lemon Cheesecake Tart with homemade Strawberry rhubarb sauce for dessert! Good thing I made that ahead BEFORE we started outside!
Savory Waffles and Gravy Recipe:
Note: The recipe for the gravy is low carb. Yay!…and then there are the waffles. My grandmas recipe is Not low carb. Together the waffles and gravy make a mighty meal but a powerful fat and carb hit too. I did find this company, Isernios Premium . They make fantastic bulk chicken sausage in bulk and several other varieties of pork links that looks really good and are made with natural ingredients! I’ll be looking into their products. Thought I’d pass the link along for you.
I have made this recipe for a large crowd and it’s a big hit! I suggest doubling it for four huge hungry guys Like I fed. 1/2 of a waffle and gravy was PLENTY for me 🙂
This gravy would be excellent by itself or in lettuce wraps or other ways(let your imagination run wild here) if your a low carb kind of connoisseur. Here’s how to make the gravy. Go here for the waffle recipe.
- In a large skillet, put bulk sausage and seasonings and turn to medium.
- While it’s cooking mince the onion and garlic.
- Add the garlic and two of the chopped onions in with the sausage and chop it all up with your spatula until the sausage is thoroughly, evenly chopped with the onions and garlic. The sausage should be in very small evenly sized pieces.
- Whisk together the flour milk, salt and pepper and pour into the skillet stirring constantly. Immediately reduce heat to simmer. When thickened to your taste the gravy is done.
- Pour over your waffles. We have put eggs over easy (go here for a tutorial on making perfect eggs) on top for a whopper of breakfast!
