Sausage Gravy Bisquits

After living in the south I often....really often crave something fatty and heavy and deep fried. But the mere thought of typing that makes me shiver. It's like talking yourself into trying something very non-vegan and you find you can't get it past your lips. This recipe seems to help those cravings. In the previous post I wrote about a new love in my life - Cream of everything mix. The other morning I was searching for something to make for breakfast and having been oatmealed out I gave this a try. It made the list of new family faves after my 2 year old had his third helping. I hope you like it as much as they did.

Vegan Sausage Gravy

1/3 c cream of mix
1 1/3 c liquid
2 sausages (or morning star brand)
4 pieces of toast or bisquits

Make gravy and crumble in the sausages. Pour over toast and serve hot. You may want to double this. :)

Cream O' Somethin'

Happy New Year everyone! Now that wer're 3 months into the year and I still have yet to post. :) Well, I have found something worth posting and a wonderful reader named Rachelle reminded me that my blog is still here so here it goes. I found this wonderfully helpful recipe on pintrest the other day that is a base for any cream of soup. I did a little veganising and here it is. I'll also post how we used it. The original recipe is from oneorangegiraffe.blogspot.com It has a lot of fun recipes on it you'll want to check out. Not vegan but cute!
