During the days when times were rough and money was tight I would make this for our dinner. I'm still making it today when I forget to get meat out of the freezer or just what this dish because it is so good. My daughter was over the other week and I didn't know she was coming so I made this dish and it brought tears to her eyes as she remembers me making it when she was a little girl. By the way; her husband loved it too. I might add that this is not for those on a diet. LOL

How to Make Norma's Special Biscuits, Eggs, & Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix in a bowl self-rising flour. Add shortening and blend well with a fork or pastry blender.
  2. Add salt, and stir. While stiring add milk until you can form a ball. At times you might need more flour to handle.
  3. Pinch of a piece of dough the size of your hand, shape into a biscuit and place it in a greased 8x10 pan. Keep doing this until pan is filled with biscuits sides touching.
  4. Place pan of bisuits in a pre-heated oven at 400. Bake until golden brown. (you can use canned biscuits if desired)
  5. BASIC WHITE SAUCE:
  6. In a saucepan over low heat, melt margarine or butter. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute, stirring or whisking.
  7. Remove pan from heat and gradually stir or whisk in the milk.
  8. Return pan to heat. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring or whisking, and continue to cook until mixture thickens.
  9. Simmer 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  10. Place 2 split biscuits on a plate. Top with sliced hard boiled egg and crisp bacon.
  11. Serve with white sauce poured over all.
  12. (I double this recipe for more sauce).
