A Traditional New Orleans Favorite

The Fried Pork Chop and Sausage Gravy Sandwich is a traditional sandwich dish originating from New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a delicious combination of a fried pork chop and creamy, flavorful sausage gravy, served on a choice of bread (usually French bread) and often topped with some other add-ons, including onions and pickles.The sandwich was originally created by the city’s chefs as an inexpensive, yet protein-rich dish, and is popularly sold at fast food joints, cafes and other eateries in New Orleans.

Making the Sandwich Gluten-Free

People who are gluten-intolerant don’t have to miss out on the Fried Pork Chop and Sausage Gravy Sandwich — it can easily be made to be gluten-free by replacing the bread with a preferred gluten-free bread. Alternately, the sandwich can be served in a bowl, with the pork chop and gravy served together in a skillet or deep dish. Additionally, gluten-free sausage gravy can easily be created by substituting certain grain-based thickeners with gluten-free alternatives — such as arrowroot or cornstarch.

Adapting the Recipe for a Vegan Diet

Vegan diners don’t have to miss out on the New Orleans’ favorite either — a vegan version of the Fried Pork Chop and Sausage Gravy Sandwich can be created using plant-based alternatives for the two main ingredients. Perhaps the most popular substitute for the pork chop is the Beyond Meat “Chik’n Strip”, which has a comparable texture and flavor, when fried. To veganize the gravy, it is a simple matter of substituting animal-based fats for plant-based options, such as vegan butter and olive oil.
