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!

Milk Gravy Recipe:

Recipe Type: Condiments and Sauces, Cream, 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 flour
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 cooked and place on a 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. Check out Mom's Biscuits and Gravy recipe.

Makes enough gravy for 10 to 12 homemade biscuits.
