Milk Gravy (Paula Deen)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kim D.

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!

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