Re: QUICK! What do you use bacon grease for?

I make it super easy. Heat up the grease (I use one package of bacons worth ) pretty hot then turn back the heat to med-low. Add about 2 heaping spoons of flour (start with less), you want it to be watery enough you can still stir it with no lumps. Cook like this for a few minutes to cook out the flour taste. Then add about 2-3 cups of milk slowly and keep stirring. It will thicken as you cook it. It makes a pretty big pan full, you can add milk as after you take it off the heat if it seems too thick.

I may have to cook some now! Making me hungry!
Yea, I've watched my mom make the gravy five billion times b/c my dad is hooked on it. I haven't personally done it, but I do know it's flour and milk stirred in and simmered till it's as thick as you want. Basically.

I just suck at baking, and have an oven that is over 50 yrs old (literally, not joking) so making biscuits seems a bit daunting.

I know I should try it, DH would love it.
