    Kim D.'s Note:

    My grandmother used to make the BEST milk gravy! She would serve it over chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes. Unfortunatley, I never got her original recipe. I came across this recipe in a "Cooking with Paula Deen" magazine and I think this is very close to what my grandmother used to make!

      Heat 1-2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat.

      great simple and yet tasty. I used white pepper, and 1.5tsp salt. & 2% milk.

      This is a good base, but you'll need to add meat and spice. What you wind up with here is essentially a milk roux. I like using a half package of bacon, but you can put any meat (sausage, etc.) in. First pour your olive oil in a cast-iron frying pan, then add two peppers (pasilla or anaheim), two shallots, and half the package of bacon. Fry till the bacon's done on medium high. Add the flour and stir into a roux. Add the milk, and stir until thick. This goes best on top of chicken breaded with italian bread crumbs and spices baked in the oven and vermicelli. Good stuff.

      The amount of pepper in this is WAY too much. If i were to make this again, I'd add the pepper after it thickened -- to taste. It's a simple recipe. Needed a bit more nuance for my taste.
