Keto Sausage Gravy

  • Yield: 8 Servings 1x


This Keto Sausage Gravy recipe is a Southern tradition for breakfast, and uses ingredients that allow you to stay on your low carb diet. It is quick, easy, and very tasty, so much so that you will not believe that you are eating something low carb!!

Along with this gravy try our low carb biscuit recipe too, a perfect combination for a hearty breakfast. Make them both ahead and you will have your breakfast in a few minutes.


  • 1 pound Sausage, ground
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, softened
  • 3 ounces Cream Cheese, softened 
  • ¾ cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ cup Chicken Broth
  • ¼ tsp Xanthan Gum
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • ½ tsp Onion Powder
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder




If the gravy is too thick add another ¼ cup of broth to thin it out.

If the gravy is too thin add extra cream cheese 1 tablespoon at a time.

If you want the keto sausage gravy to be less salty then add low sodium broth, use no salt butter and omit the added salt.

Use any type of sausage that you want, sweet, hot, or breakfast style.

Beware not to use too much  xanthan gum because it really thickens quite a bit, which will be way too much, and then you will have a thick mess that you will now have to add more liquid to thin out.

If you have never used xanthan gum before, sometimes you can find it in your grocery store in the baking aisle, if not you will have to go online to order it.

Reheating: It is easy to reheat the sausage gravy. Do it one of two ways:

  • Microwave: Heat the gravy in a bowl for 1-2 minutes.

  • Stove: Heat up the gravy in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, stirring for about 5 minutes.

Storing: The gravy can be stored in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Freezing: This is one recipe that does not do well in the refrigerator, so enjoy the leftovers in a few days instead. It separates and hence will not heat up too well.
