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.
