Vegetarian Biscuits and Gravy Recipe

Vegetarian Biscuits & Gravy Recipe

I’ve mentioned it before, I don’t really like breakfast. The past few days I’ve had caprese sandwiches for breakfast. My husband, on the other hand, loves breakfast. Waffles, eggs, pancakes, you name it, he loves it. Biscuits and gravy is one of his favorites when we’re out at restaurants and though he does his best to avoid meat, he does give in once in a while. I decided to give biscuits and gravy a try using fake breakfast sausage. It took a few times to tweak the recipe, but I’ve come up with my go-to recipe for Vegetarian Gravy! We have this a few times a month and Blaine is always super excited when he sees that I’ve made it. I have to admit, I was never intrigued by biscuits and gravy, but I love it too now!

P.S. I guess the title of this recipe is a lie because I don’t teach you how to make biscuits, just the gravy FOR biscuits & gravy. For biscuits? We use the easy refrigerated kind from the grocery store most of the time.

Vegetarian Gravy Recipe

Time: 10-15 minutesServings: enough to top 4 biscuits


  • 2 frozen morningstar sausage patties OR 1/2 package lightlife (refrigerated) sausage
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 cups milk (we use almond milk)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Note: this recipe doesn’t include biscuits so just use your own recipe or use refrigerated biscuit dough from the store. I usually throw them in the oven first and they’re ready right before the gravy is. Perfect timing!

1. If using frozen sausage patties: microwave until warm, but not too hot. Break apart and add to heated and oiled pan. If using lightlife sausage, cook according to instructions on back.

2. Once the “meat” is heated, sprinkle in the flour and wisk everything together to combine

3. When the flour has been mixed in, slowly add the milk and wisk everything together to help break up the flour

4. Add pepper and simmer lightly, stirring occasionally until desired thickness is achieved.

Let me know if you try this recipe, I’d love to hear if you like it.

  1. That looks pretty good! I have bee trying to go vegetarian for a while now, but I keep failing at it. I do it for a couple of weeks and then I fall back into eating meat because I run out of options. Do you have any tips for me? Love your blog!

    1. You need to know why you’re doing it and create a passion for it. I do it for many reasons: animals, health and the environment. The second part is planning. We don’t even have meat in the house so that’s not an option. Plan your meals, grab a sheet of paper and write down all the great vegetarian options so when you feel like there’s “nothing to eat” you can look at that list. I honestly never really struggled with it that much because I made a commitment to it from the start without much hesitation (a rarity for me!). Good luck!!

  2. I tried this recipeWorked great! We used olive oil butter instead and added a pinch of paprika and used spicy Morningstar sausage. Great recipe! Thank you!

  3. I made these tonight!! They were perfect…just like we get at our favorite breakfast place. Thanks for posting the vegetarian version!

  4. Thank you so much! I have been vegetarian for about 9 years and have accidentally had gravy with meat ingredients and the ones I’ve made homemade didnt have flavor. I’m so excited to try this!!
