This is southern Saw Mill gravy also called pepper gravy. For breakfast I add 1/2 lb. cooked sausage to it and serve it over biscuits. It is hard for me to make alittle of anything so refrigerate or freeze leftovers or cut recipe in half! You may need to add more milk if it is saved and reheated as it will thicken somewhat.
oil, veg. or canola
1 1/2 tsp
coarse black pepper
1 1/4 tsp
1In medium to large pot add oil,flour,salt, and pepper. Heat on medium for 2 1/2 minutes stirring constantly. Do not let it brown! This is a light roux.
2Pour milk in all at once, whisking as you do so. You can turn the heat up some but beware of scorching. Stir constantly. Bring to full boil. Add alittle more milk if it is too thick for your liking.
3For sausage gravy add in 1/2 lb. crumbled, fully cooked sausage.
