This was my sister's favorite thing to eat when she was growing up. She wouldn't let anyone but me make it for her.

Directions

  1. Cook and drain beef. (I rinse the beef under hot water to remove all of the grease -- it is rich enough!).
  2. Melt butter in a pan and when melted and lightly sizzling add the flour.
  3. Whisk until combined and gently simmer the butter/flour mixture for about two minutes to remove the flour/starch taste but don't let it brown any.
  4. Add the 1.5 cups of milk and quickly whisk until smooth. SImmer until thick over medium heat stirring constantly. It will be quite thick.
  5. Add the half and half cream and quickly whisk until smooth.
  6. Cook over low heat until thickened.
  7. Add the beef and adjust the seasonings.
  8. Serve over good biscuits well buttered.
  9. This is a very creamy and rich gravy. You may use 2 cups whole milk if you need to omit the cream.
  10. If it is too thick for your taste -- then dilute with more milk -- but it usually is perfect the way it is written.
  11. Leftovers are excellent.

I love this gravy. The ultimate breakfast comfort food. I used ground turkey since that is all I had. I used a cream. I couldn't use pepper due to allergies in the family, so I used some garlic powder and it was delicious! I added a wonderful savory flavor to the gravy.

This is a very good gravy and biscuit recipe. I used sausage and also a little bit of cream (had to use it up) and it was rich rich rich. We loved it though. I will make again, as we couldn't get enough of it. Great flavor and it cooked up so nicely. Thank you for sharing this with us.
