My Pawpaw used to make this gravy along with bacon (the source of the drippings), fried eggs and a 5 count can of biscuits and Coffee perculating on the stove.He claimed the coffee didn't taste right in them electric things! The aroma of coffee and bacon always woke me up!

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
bacon drippings
5 Tbsp
flour, packed
1 1/2 c
water
alittle salt
black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 6-8 in. skillet add drippings, flour, salt and pepper and whisk together. Heat on med. high heat stirring constantly untill it turns a med. to dark brown in color. Quickly add water, stirring constantly. Bring back up to boil, adjust salt and pepper to taste. Reduce to low and cook 1-2 minutes
2
If gravy is alittle thick just add alittle more water. Must be served right away as it skims easily.
3
If you don't save bacon drippings like us southern cooks just fry 4-5 pieces of bacon, thick sliced.
