Hints & Tips
This very easy-to-make milk gravy recipe will drive men crazy! They love it because their mother used to
make it. People from the South like to claim it as their gravy, but don't let
them fool you. I'm a northern gal (from the Pacific Northwest) and this is also
my guy's favorite gravy! This is the only gravy you want to use when making Biscuits and Gravy. Just like Mom
used to make! Check out

Milk Gravy Recipe
Condiments and Sauces,
Biscuits and Gravy
Yields: serves many
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
1/4 cup pan drippings (bacon drippings or sausage drippings)*
1/4 cup all-purpose
2 cups milk or heavy
cream, room temperature
Salt and pepper to taste
* You can use the drippings/grease from any meat, but bacon and
sausage are the traditional ones used.
Remove the bacon or sausage once it is done and place on paper towel lined plate to
drain. See that brown stuff in the bottom of your pan? That's going to be your gravy!
Using the same frying pan that you cooked your bacon or sausage in, over medium-high heat, combine bacon or sausage dripping and flour; brown flour, stirring constantly
with a whisk or fork.
Gradually add the milk or cream, stirring constantly until all is added, and cook until the gravy is smooth and thick. Season
to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve the milk gravy hot over biscuits.
Makes enough gravy for 10 to 12 homemade biscuits.
