Bacon ‘n’ Egg Gravy

My husband, Ron, created this wonderful bacon and egg gravy. It's home-style and old-fashioned. Sometimes we ladle the gravy over homemade biscuits. Served with fruit salad, it's a great breakfast. —Terry Bray, Winter Haven, Florida

    Great recipe reminiscent of one from my youth. Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Excellent served over hot biscuits, grits or rice, too.

    I miss my mothers biscuits and bacon gravy. Thank you for the recipe. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

    My grandmother made her gravy this way. She didn’t make the standard over peppered sausage gravy you get every where. Was surprised to see this. I love this gravy and am happy to see someone else is making it. Reminds me of my grandmother every time I make it.
