Old Fashioned Country Bacon Gravy: This gravy is creamy and super flavorful. This homemade gravy recipe is so easy to make you’ll never want to use a dry flavorless store bought gravy packet again.
I grew up eating this delicious Old Fashioned Country Bacon Gravy. I remember my grandma making it even for dinner with fried potatoes and boiled beans. COMFORT AT ITS FINEST! Mom will make biscuits and gravy for us (It’s my Dad’s favorite meal) when we come to visit. It’s a treat for my Dad because he doesn’t get it very often (not a very healthy meal). But COMPLETELY worth being “bad” once in a while. For me this recipe started with me enjoying it at my grandmas house. This is a recipe that my mom made, I make and now my daughter makes. I love those kinds of recipes. Four generations and going strong. For the perfect breakfast pour this delicious gravy over my Sour Cream Biscuits.
