Living in the South everything is about family and pork and sharing a meal together, so it seems just natural that you would want to make Peppered Bacon Gravy with Biscuits for your family on a Sunday morning.  This recipe will blow your mind at how simple and delicious it is.  The biscuit recipe is the one I used and all and all it turned out well.  The only thing I did was brush each biscuit top with a little melted butter before I removed them from the oven.

 Here is what you will need:


6-8 slices of good quality bacon chopped

2 1/2 cups milk ( I used low fat)

2-3 Tbs flour

salt & pepper to taste

Serves 4

Brown your bacon in a deep sided skillet until crispy.  Be sure to cook the bacon a little bit longer than you normally would so it does not get too soggy when you mix it with the gravy.

Once bacon is crispy, remove from skillet and drain on a paper towel.

Drain bacon grease from pan, but be sure to leave 2-3 tablespoons of bacon fat in skillet.  Stir in flour and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium high heat.

Whisk in milk a little at a time on medium high heat being sure to eliminate all clumps by whisking.  Once all milk is added whisk on medium high continuously ensuring that mixture does not scald.

Turn heat to low until mixture thickens and can coat the back of a spoon.

Once mixture is desired thickness return bacon and heat through.

Split biscuits and serve.
