Bacon Cheeseburger Gravy...BC-SOS!

I got out some ground beef thinking - I'll figure out what to do with it later.

Well later came around and I was torn between SOS and a patty melt ... Bacon Cheeseburger SOS was conceived!

I served it on split biscuits, but it would be great on toast, hamburger buns (sloppy joe style), or ladled over potatoes.

Not an everyday thing...just a nice comfort food fix - with a twist (:

I think next time I may add a little diced jalapeno....

1Place bacon slices in a medium skillet then turn on heat to medium low.

2Cooking the bacon slow will render it and you will use it as the base of your gravy later on. About 3 to 4 minutes should do it.

3Flip and cook until bacon is golden but don't over cook it - burnt bacon will not make a tasty gravy. About another couple of minutes.

4Remove bacon and set aside. Add ground beef and dice onion(here is where you add diced jalapeno, if using). Break apart ground beef add a little salt and pepper. The bacon will add some salt on it's own so just a little will flavor the ground beef nicely.

5When the ground beef has browned and the onion is translucent, sprinkle flour over the top.

6Stir in the flour and cook 3 to 4 minutes. The mixture will look "dry" but that's correct.
