Bacon Country Gravy

Bacon Country Gravy

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Taste for salt. Serve hot over biscuits with the crumbled bacon on top.
