Hoff Thoughts: Currently, I can't find vegan, gluten-free biscuits, so I use Schar's Deli Style Sourdough bread.  Also, the only gluten-free sausage I can find is Beyond Meat's Sausage.  Both make a super yummy, super indulgent breakfast.  I typically only make this for Christmas breakfast, once year. Ho Ho Ho!
