Biscuits and gravy is one of my favorite breakfasts. Every weekend, I wake up wondering what I can make and biscuits smothered with a country white gravy always comes to mind. If you aren’t up for making your own biscuits, you can keep some frozen biscuits in your freezer at all times. Although, I have to tell you that biscuits are so easy to make…see my homemade biscuits recipe here.
Back to Bacon Country Gravy. I don’t always keep sausage in the house but I usually have bacon in the fridge or freezer. So one day I woke up and I was craving biscuits and gravy and found bacon. I imagined what the gravy would taste like cooked in the same pan as the bacon and voila…YUMMY! Give this delicious Bacon Country Gravy a try this coming weekend!
Bacon Country Gravy Recipe
3 Slices Bacon, thick cut
2 Tbsp Butter
4 Tbsp Flour (All Purpose)
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
2 Cups Milk
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
Salt to taste
- In skillet over medium heat, add bacon. Cook until crisp. Do not allow bacon or grease to burn as it will cause the gravy to taste burnt. Remove bacon. Leave 2 tablespoons bacon grease in the hot skillet.
- Add butter and flour. Whisk until roux forms, about 2 -3 minutes. Slowly stir in milk and whisk well until gravy starts to thicken. Add pepper. Reduce heat to medium low.
- Taste for salt. Serve hot over biscuits with the crumbled bacon on top.
