I LOVE all your recipes and would like to come over for an extended stay! Just kidding. This is a great recipe for me. I am new to country gravy because where I grew up, we never had it-at home or in restaurants. I like the fact you don't have use grease from meat to make this gravy and it is very good. It came out nice and my family liked it. I added a little more milk to mine because it was thick but this is a good recipe! Thank you

Great recipe! You can also add cooked up ground sausage and 1/8-1/4 tsp. italian seasoning and it will taste even truer to the gravy you get on your biscuits in the restaurants. This extra little add on can't be beat! Thanks again, Kittencal We sure LOVE your eecipes!

This was my first attempt at making gravy without sausage and it turned out well! I used the bacon grease leftover from cooking my bacon in place of the oil. It gave the gravy great flavor! I should have listened to the reviews and cut this in half... it was way too much gravy for my one package of biscuits.
