Homestyle Country Sausage Gravy & Biscuits ~ Vegetarian

I have been trying to eat more oatmeal, thinking of anyway I can to squeeze in more.  I created this thick & creamy Homestyle Country Sausage Gravy, using pureed oatmeal as the base & TVP sausage crumbles.  It has all the flavor & appearance of a traditional recipe, but with a vegetarian spin.  It has crumbles of vegetarian sausage, flecks of fresh cracked black pepper & a hint of sage.  Ladle it over fresh, warm biscuits & breakfast is served.  It is AMAZING!!  I received the best approval of all, Roy liked it ~ a lot!!  He has asked for it again, so I KNOW it's a Meatless Monday winner!
