Millie's Story

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.


1/3 c
oil, veg. or canola
3/4 c
1 1/2 tsp
coarse black pepper
1 1/4 tsp
4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

In 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.
Pour 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.
For sausage gravy add in 1/2 lb. crumbled, fully cooked sausage.

Hi Millie, How are you and hubby doing? You are both in my prayers. I had not made Pepper Gravy in so long that when Mark asked for it with biscuits this morning I drew a blank (not that hard to do in yours 70's) but I did remember you had posted one. I used half oil and half bacon drippings and Mark and I were both so pleased with the result. Thank you so much for your great recipes, I use many of them and included them on my Christmas recipe CD I send family and friends every year. You "Rock" girl.
