Found this in Paula's Cooking with Paula magazine and wanted to save it until I was able to try it.

Found a recipe for biscuits and sausage gravy and decided to try this recipe as it was the same as Sawmill gravy-Very salty between the bacon and sausage and the teaspoon of salt-I would also have cooked the bacon first because it didn't get crispy and stayed flabby and also became very thick right away-I would add 2 tbs of flour instead of 3 to make it a little looser -I could take or leave the garlic-If I made this for breakfast,I would leave it out

I was craving biscuits and gravy and this definitely filled that desire. I loved the extra flavor that the bacon, garlic and onions added to "regular" sausage gravy, but next time I make this I will definitely omit the salt.
