Who doesn't enjoy biscuits and gravy? I sure do but never knew how to make the gravy from scratch until a good friend of mine taught me how. Now I make this about once a month or whenever we are in the mood for it. It is so delicious!!

1 pkg
bacon, uncooked
1 pkg
bob evans breakfast sausage
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2 c
to 3 cups of milk
salt & pepper to taste
1 pkg
bisquick buttermilk biscuits

Directions Step-By-Step

First cook Bacon in Pan, Take the Bacon out and you will use the Bacon grease to make the gravy. While Bacon is cooking in another pan cook and ground up the Sausage. Keep Sausage warm until you are ready for it.
Make the bisquick buttermilk biscuits as directed. Put them in the oven right after bacon is done. So that they will be done around the same time the gravy is.
When the bacon is done, Remove bacon and use the grease, immediately while heat is still on add the flour, stirring constantly, then slowly add the milk and keep stirring
Add salt & pepper and add sausage also. Keep stirring till it starts to thicken. It takes about 20 mins for it to thicken.
When biscuits are done & Gravy is thickened; Put biscuits on plates open faced and pour the amount of gravy you would like on each biscuit. Serve immediately

One of my favorite comfort foods. My mother made these all the time when I was growing up, but with lard unstead of bacon grease.

I always just use the sausage grease to make my gravy but like they say, everything's better with bacon.

Yes! I have tried sausage grease once and it doesn't work the same and sure does not taste the same. It's the bacon flavor that makes these so Yummy!
