- Whisk in the milk, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil over low heat, stirring often.

This was really good! I think I like it just as much as sausage gravy, if not more. It's cheaper than sausage gravy too (and probably has less calories). I had to use dried onions because I didn't realize that I had run out of "real" onions, and I don't really recommend that. It had an overpowering flavor of minced onions. However, I can just imagine how awesome it would be with the right ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
