White Trash Hamburger Gravy and Breakfast Biscuits

Recipe by Pot Scrubber
READY IN: 20mins




  • Cook and drain beef. (I rinse the beef under hot water to remove all of the grease -- it is rich enough!).
  • Melt butter in a pan and when melted and lightly sizzling add the flour.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add the half and half cream and quickly whisk until smooth.
  • Cook over low heat until thickened.
  • Add the beef and adjust the seasonings.
  • Serve over good biscuits well buttered.
  • This is a very creamy and rich gravy. You may use 2 cups whole milk if you need to omit the cream.
  • If it is too thick for your taste -- then dilute with more milk -- but it usually is perfect the way it is written.
  • Leftovers are excellent.
