Makes: 9 big biscuits & 1 skillet of gravy Total Time: 45 min
Category: Breads Sub Category: Biscuits & Scones

what you need
  • Gravy
  • 1 pkg. bacon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 5-6 cups milk
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Butter Biscuits
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup milk (aprox.- give or take) until dough is slightly wet
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 stick butter/margarine
make it
Preheat oven to 350. Using a regular sized skillet, first fry bacon in skillet. Crumble bacon in bowl and set aside, but do not drain the grease - keep grease on low heat while making biscuits.

Mix all ingredients for biscuits in bowl until mostly dense dough forms and slightly wet. If dough is dry, add milk sparingly.

Grease baking sheet or I like to use a baking stone. Pull apart small balls of dough and drop on sheet - makes 9 biscuits. Bake until tops are slightly brown and middles are done.

Depending on how much grease is in skillet you can pour some out. Using a whisk or wooden spoon, I like to have about 3-4 Tbsp. of grease in skillet, sprinkle flour in slowly and keep stirring until medium consistency mixture forms.

It's important to keep stirring so no lumps form. You want this mixture to be smooth. While still stirring, I take a gallon of milk and pour until my skillet is 3/4 the way full (approx. 5-7 cups).

Add crumbled bacon, salt & pepper, and bring to slow boil - constantly stirring. When gravy thickens to your likeness, reduce heat and break open a biscuit and serve.
This recipe is awesome! I've been making it for years and is such a great alternative to the same old sausage gravy & biscuits.

Always a crowd pleaser! Please rate it and let me know how you liked it!!!!
