Bacon Gravy

Bacon Gravy created by Swirling F.

One day DH wanted biscuits and gravy, but I didn't have sausage, only bacon. So, I found a recipe online and went for it. Thus, bacon gravy was born!

    Thank you for giving me the simple steps to finally recreate a childhood favorite. For those wanting more flavor, be patient and allow enough cooking between steps. Also, salt and pepper to taste!

    Ohh wow. I haven’t had bacon gravy in years. I’ve only ever had it over toast. (not buttered) Now I know why I don’t make it often. It’s evil good! I think I like it better than sausage gravy. And yes, it’s bland. But you need to season your gravy. Lol.

    I just made bacon gravy, but instead of milk I use chicken stock. It is good and I'm sure it could be frozen because it doesn't have milk.

    A nice, simple milk gravy with bacon subbed in for breakfast sausage. Haven't made this one yet, but 5 stars already because I didn't have to scroll through a 6-page essay encompassing the past 20 years of your spiritual cooking journey to read the recipe. Thank you for that.
