Sausage Gravy on Toast


A favorite Southern breakfast for me when I don’t want eggs:  cream gravy on biscuits or toast.  I try to keep lkow-carb bread or biscuits already made up and in the fridge.  I even like to have this gravy, on occasion, right on top of a plate of scrambled eggs!  I have to confess, it’s pretty good that way, too!  So you folks on Induction can certainly have it that way, or on a toasted unsweetened flax Muffin in a Minute.  The mushrooms aren’t traditional in this, so feel free to omit them.  But I like to include some veggies into my breakfast whenever I can.  If the mushrooms are omitted, the count drops by 5 calories, .7 carbs, .46 fiber or .24 NC per serving.

1/8 tsp. crushed dried tarragon or 1 tsp. chopped parsley (optional)

Pinch each onion powder and black pepper

Dash xanthan gum to thicken


Brown sausage over medium heat in non-stick skillet, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks.  If including, add chopped mushrooms when sausage is nearly done.  When mushrooms are done,   add cream, water and all seasonings.  Simmer on low a couple minutes.  Lightly dust xanthan gum over surface and stir until thick.  Repeat if needed.  Server over toasted low-carb bread or your favorite low carb biscuit.

  1. I am very thankful to have found you. I was fixing to die of boredom following Atkins. There is hope of sticking to it, having found you. Thanks so much for doing what you do.


    • That’s exactly why I do it! I want to help others ENJOY the variety of great food and recipes that are OK for Atkins and many other low-carb, healthy, ketogenic diets. No point in EVERYONE re-inventing the wheel! Happy browsing and happy cooking. Best of luck on your weight-loss journey, too!


      • Thanks a lot. Now just maintaining and being content in this new way of life. Having found you makes it much better. Keep doing what you do! I am making your chicken livers very soon, just went and bought some. The fact that you invented so many comfort foods (like gravy) is really great.
