    Gravy

    I usually make bacon to go with my biscuits and gravy and this is how I make the gravy.

    place skillet over med. heat

    1/4 cup of drippings from bacon

    1/4 cup flour, stir until browned

    gradually add 2 1/2 or 3 cups of hot milk.

    Stir constantly until thickened and bubbly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    I also cut up pieces of bologna - about 1/2 the pack or so, I like a lot. Cut it in small bite size squares. And pour it into the gravy while you are waiting for it to get thick. It is soooo good. I have been eating it like that my whole life and my husband and kids love it. Way better than sausage gravy.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Look for good biscuit recipes on sides of Bis-Quick. Gravy is just water, ground up sausage and milk cooked together until thick.

    Let diners add salt and pepper to the gravy.

    OMG, there was a place I used to go to in Portland, Oregon that had the BEST bisquits and gravy. Instead of using regular bisquit mix, they mixed in cornbread mix, so it was this part bisquit/part cornbread type of bisquit. They did regular gravy, except they added cajun spice to make it extra spicy, and they used GROUND Sausage, NOT chopped links or patties. The base for the gravy was part heavy cream, so it was like 1,000,000 calories, but sooooo goooood.....
