One of my earliest memories is of my mother making biscuits and gravy for breakfast. All the kids would stand around while Mom cut the biscuits hoping for a little scrap of dough to play with. We weren't disappointed! Before baking them, Mom would melt bacon grease in the skillet and dip the biscuit top in the grease before turning the bisuit over and placing it in the skillet. Makes a really good old-fashioned biscuit! I think Mom must have doubled her recipe to feed all of us.
