Cracked Pepper Gravy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Iowahorse

A buddy e-mailed me this a while back, It's pretty dang good too. Cracked pepper is different from freshly ground pepper because the former is stronger in flavor and aroma. Grind them in a food processor or blender, only pulsing them once or twice just to crack them.

I have never, ever been able to make gravy, and this turned out perfect! I substituted the milk for silk and used vegan butter as we have some lactose-intolerant members in our family. Still turned out awesome!!
