To make things easier, make the gravy up to 3 days in advance!  HERE IS MY AMAZING GRAVY RECIPE—->>>>OLD FASHIONED COUNTRY BACON GRAVY.  The biscuits?  Well…..biscuits are not my thing.  If you have a recipe you love then by all means make your own.  For me using the frozen Pillsbury biscuits works.

Ingredients

For the Country Gravy

  • 1 (12 ounce) package bacon, each slice cut into thirds
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the Crust

  • 1 (25 ounce) package frozen biscuits, thawed

For the Scrambled Eggs

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For the Toppings

  • 3/4 of a (32 ounce) bag of tater tots, baked
  • 2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Instructions

    For the Country Gravy:

    1. Cut bacon into thirds; fry in a large skillet (I use cast iron) until almost crisp.
    2. Remove bacon from the skillet; sprinkle flour over hot bacon grease.
    3. Whisk until the flour is brown; add milk about a half cup at a time, whisking the whole time until all the milk has been added.
    4. Season with salt and pepper; set a side.

    For the Crust:

    1. Preheat oven to 350°; spray a 16x12-inch baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
    2. Combine thawed biscuits into a disk; on a lightly floured surface roll until almost the size of the pan; place the dough in the prepared pan and finish pressing the dough to the edges and up the sides. Prick dough with a fork; spray top of dough with non stick cooking spray.
    3. Bake 20 minutes.
    4. Remove crust from the oven; turn the heat to 425°.
    5. Place tater tots on a large baking pan; bake until almost done (about 20 to 25 minutes).

    For the Scrambled Eggs:

    1. While the tater tots are baking cook the eggs.
    2. Crack the eggs into a large bowl; whisk in the milk, salt and pepper.
    3. Heat a large skillet on medium high; pour eggs into skillet and cook until light and fluffy.

    Time to Build:

    1. Trun oven back down to 350°.
    2. Reheat the gravy if it is cold (you may need to add a splash of milk), Spoon gravy onto the baked biscuit dough all the way to the edges.
    3. Add bacon pieces, scrambled eggs, TIP: The reason for placing the bacon at the bottom is to prevent it from getting overdone., tater tots and cheese.
    4. Bake 15 minutes.
