How to Prepare Garlicky Cheddar Biscuits With Sausage Gravy [Vegan]

To Make the Biscuits:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the milk with the lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes until it thickens.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a fork, pastry cutter, or your fingers until it develops a crumbly, sand-like consistency.
  4. Mix in the cheese, then add the milk mixture. Mix with a spatula until everything is well combined; the dough will seem slightly wet, but don’t overmix.
  5. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out 12 portions onto the prepared baking sheet, setting them at least 1/2 inch (1 cm) apart.
  6. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the tops look dry and the bottoms are just slightly browned.

To make the garlicky topping:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the butter, parsley, and garlic powder.
  2. When the biscuits come out of the oven, immediately brush the tops with the butter mixture.

To make the gravy:

  1. While the biscuits bake, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages and onion. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the sausages are browned and the onions are softened. Add the garlic and sauté an additional 1 minute, until fragrant.
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the sausage mixture in the skillet and toss with a spatula to coat everything with the flour.
  3. Slowly add the milk, stirring until incorporated. Bring just to a bubble and lower the heat to a simmer. Add the salt, pepper, and chili powder. Simmer 2 to 4 minutes, or until the gravy thickens more. Taste and add more seasoning, if desired.
  4. Plate 2 biscuits and smother with 1/3 cup gravy. Garnish with chopped chives or fresh parsley, if desired.

Don’t have sausage? No problem! Omit the sausage and just call it “country gravy”; adjust seasoning, if desired. Create bite-size portions of these biscuits by dropping 1 heaping tablespoon of the dough onto a prepared baking sheet about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. They are great for holiday gatherings.
