Biscuits and Gravy for One

Suzan Baroni


When I was on Nutrisystem this breakfast was a real treat. Now that I have reached my goal weight, I still love to make this wonderful dish. I serve it with one scrambled egg and pour the gravy over all of it! It makes me feel like I am having something naughty; yet it clocks in at a total of less than 300 calories.

5 Min


15 Min


1/3 c
bisquick complete buttermilk biscuit mix
2 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
pioneer brand peppered gravy mix
1/3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees (I do not wait for the oven to be fully heated. I just turn it on while I make the biscuits and put the pan in the oven while it continues to heat.)
Pour 1/3 cup of biscuit mix into a small bowl. Add a scant 2 tablespoon of water and mix with a fork just until combined. It is very important to use a fork for this step and not over mix the batter. Once it holds itself together and you see no dry spots, it's ready to go on the cookie sheet. (I have a small Pampered Chef baking stone I use for this) Place the biscuit on a cookie sheet and shape it a little with the fork.
Bake the biscuit for 11-13 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
For the gravy: Place 1 tablespoon of gravy mix and 1/3 cup water in a small microwave safe bowl. Whisk until smooth. Cover with some wax paper and microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk the gravy until all the lumps are gone and it starts to become a bit thicker. If it still seems too thin, microwave for another 15 seconds and whisk well. It will thicken upon standing, so I do this when there are a few minutes left on the biscuit timer to let it set up.
When the biscuit is done, put it on the plate with a scrambled egg and pour on the gravy!

NOTE: You can use any brand of gravy mix you like, this is just the one that works for me.
