Biscuits and gravy

Biscuits and gravy, a delicious morning favorite. Sinfully loaded in carbs and not recommended for diabetics,  but a treat for now and then. How do I make this gluten and corn free you ask? Simple.  Here is my biscuit recipe:
1 1/2 cups freshly milled brown rice flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda (I use arm and hammer brand)
3/4-1 teaspoon of salt
Around 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil or lard if you can have pork or kerrigold butter
1-2 tablespoons of flax (optional to add fiber)
Around 1 cup of yogurt (plain or greek ) the more protein it has the better
Mix together dry ingredients first then add the liquids. Oil and flour the bottom of a eight inch square baking pan. Drop biscuits in large spoonfuls.  Bake at 425° for metal or dark pans or 450° for clear glass pans till golden brown around 15-20 min.

Now for the gravy:
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or bacon grease if you can have pork)
1/2-1 cup brown rice flour
Around 3 cups of milk (I really just eye it)
Salt
Cook over medium high heat in a sauce pan or skillet stirring constantly till thickened. Serve with the biscuits. Again if you can have pork, sausage or bacon goes well with this. Stewed apples and cinnamon does, too.
I no longer can have pork, but it is a delicous memory :) Scrambled eggs :] okay time to go to the kitchen. Just kidding.
Have a happy, healthy, gluten free day!
