This is a really good recipe. We were raised on bacon gravy over toast or biscuits or mashed potatoes... My only problem is with the instruction, "Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease." Nooooooooooo! You save the extrq bacon grease in a sealed container in the fridge for other uses. You might as well throw away money because you have enough. ;-) This is a really good recipe. I urge you to try it. It's better than sausage gravy.

I grew up with bacon gravy, but its seems that the only kind you ever find anywhere is sausage gravy. My mother always cut the raw bacon into bits then fried it up til it was extremely crispy. Then proceeded from there. Oh...its sooooo good!!!

We grew up on Bacon gravy, and there's no better summer breakfast to be had than Bacon Gravy, Biscuits, and fresh from the garden Tomatos. Yum-Yum

I also made this the first time because because I didn't have any sausage. Now I make it just because we love it. Thank you.

I made this four times (in one week!) before I stopped constantly craving it. Of course, I had to have biscuits (Ray Gregg's Batch Biscuits (Southern Style)) with it too! I'm not going on the scale for a while! Thank you for sharing, Panhandle Sam.

Mmm, gravy! This is the way my mom always made it for us growing up. The only thing I do different is cut the bacon up before cooking. Thanks for posting! :)

I still prefer sausage gravy, but I, too, found myself without any sausage on hand when I needed to make gravy. This is very good. I used slightly less than 2 tablespoons of bacon grease (from a tub I keep in the fridge), and then I added in 6 slices of turkey bacon.

This was really good I thoroughly enjoyed it and my ds ate every bite of it. I did use a mixture of half milk and half half and half and it was delicious. I will make this again for sure! Made for Fall PAC 2008.
