Gluten Free Biscuits and Gravy (Dairy Free too)

My kiddos love sausage gravy and biscuits.  But sausage is a no-no in our house due to MSG and I am allergic to pork.  So I have been trying to come up with a solution.  

First step....

Gluten/Dairy Free biscuits
1½ cups white rice flour 
¾ cup potato starch 
3 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold coconut oil and in pieces
¾ cup coconut milk....but you can use any kind of non-dairy you prefer. If you aren't dairy free..use regular milk.
Mix all the ingredients together.  I heat the oven to 350 degrees.  I found the easiest way to make these is to use a large muffin tin and a large cookie scoop.  The dough will have the consistency of cookie dough.  I scoop each cup about half full.  There is enough dough to do about 18 biscuits.
Bake at 350 degrees until dough slightly browns.  Takes about 15 - 20 minutes.

Turkey Bacon Gravy
1 package Applegate Turkey Bacon
3TBS coconut oil
1 qt Coconut Milk (plain flavor)....I buy the tetra packs for this...not canned.
4 TBS white rice flour.
Salt/pepper to taste.

While the biscuits are baking, I start the gravy.  I dice up Applegate Turkey Bacon.  Add 3 TBS of coconut oil.  And a couple dashes of salt (omit if you want).
When the bacon starts browning, stir in about 4 TBS white rice flour.  Allow the flour to soak up what little fat there will be and stir for about 1 minute to "cook" the flour a bit.

Slowly add about 3 cups of coconut milk.  I usually add 1 cup at a time and allow the gravy to begin thickening.  Stir while adding the milk definitely.  Eventually the gravy will begin looking like this.  I allow to simmer..not boil for about 10 minutes.  Stir frequently!!!
 And then tear up your biscuits, spoon on your gravy and ENJOY!!!
**********This is Kuehner Kid approved!!!!
Also this is enough for 4 kiddos, with extras for at least 2.  If Joe and I are both eating...I would double this recipe.
