Country-Style Peppered Bacon Milk Gravy

As if peppered milk gravy isn't good all on its own, today I added bacon! Bacon not only adds extra delicious flavor, but it also makes the gravy a lot more filling, and when you have a hungry crowd waiting for breakfast, that truly matters!


  • 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of bacon, cooked and coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of bacon grease or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup of self-rising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning salt
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups of evaporated milk


In a skillet, cook 12 ounces of bacon for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how crispy you like yours to be. Turn the slices of bacon midway through cooking. Drain the cooked pieces of bacon on a paper towel-lined plate.


Using the same skillet, heat the bacon grease or canola oil over medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of self-rising flour to the hot grease and whisk until the mixture becomes smooth. Reduce the heat to a simmer.


Add in 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning salt and 2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper. Cook the flour mixture for a few minutes. Stir continuously.


Now, add one cup of evaporated milk slowly at a time. Stir constantly as you pour the milk in. If needed, remove the pan from the burner while you're adding the milk and stirring. This will help prevent your gravy from getting clumpy. Stir until the gravy is smooth.


Simmer and stir continuously just until the peppered milk gravy has thickened to your preference.


Next, coarsely chop the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Then add it to your pan of gravy and stir.


Serve over crumbled-up biscuits and enjoy!

Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
