How to Make Bacon Gravy

Step-by-Step

  • 1BACON GRAVY
    The recipes of bygone days
    Are written much about,
    But as to olden gravies
    They are about left out.
    This old-time gravy once was called
    By milk or flour or bacon,
    But it was all the very same
    When it was in the makin'.
    The bacon would be fried till brown
    Then taken from the pan,
    Some flour stirred into the grease
    And browned till it was tan.
    Then milk poured in and seasoning
    And stirred till thick and nice--
    A call that it was time to eat
    Need never be made twice.
    This was truly a special time
    For Sally, Sue and Davey--
    When soaking homemade biscuits in
    Their plates of bacon gravy.
