This recipe came from Judy Fields Jennings. Her grandmother was a good friend to my mother. "Just put the bacon grease in your black skillet and add cornmeal, self-rising is fine, as much as you would flour and brown or as mother says, toast it. After it's browned just add your milk and you have meal gravy. Just like flour gravy. The recipe was actually from my Granny. There was a time before I was born that Granny and Grampa had no flour to make gravy but they had cornmeal so Granny substituted cornmeal for flour."
