When it comes to cooking, adding bacon to everything automatically makes things better.  It’s man law.   One of the things that you absolutely need to do as a man is to know how to cook amazing dishes for your friends, your family, and if you’re dating, to impress your woman.

In this recipie we’re going to talk about a staple at breakfast, biscuits and bacon gravy.  Sure sausage gravy is great, and I’ve cooked it many times as well, but bacon gravy is king.  So here is what you’ll need:

  • 4-5 Strips of bacon (your choice of flavor)
  • 1/2 cup flour or more depending
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper (kick it up a notch)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (adjust as needed, i like peppery gravy)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 – 3 cups milk (adjust as needed)

First get a sharp knife and cutting board and slice small strips of bacon.  Drop your sliced bacon into a nice 12″ skillet  (preferably a deep one) and start frying your bacon at a medium heat.  This should be common sense but those of you who are new to cooking – don’t put any butter or oil.  Bacon frys in its own fat and creates plenty of grease (which we’ll use).

Cook your bacon until its nice and brown – and headed towards crispy.  As you can see there is plenty of grease from the bacon; don’t drain it!  Stir in the flour so that it absorbs the grease and fat and then add the salt, sugar, pepper, garlic salt, and red pepper.


Stir in the milk

Stir in the milk with a whisk

Once its mixed it will be a bit pasty.  Slowly add the milk in using a whisk so you can avoid the flour clumping up too much.  Continue stiring until the gravy boils and allow it to boil for about 5 minutes – it will thicken up and look similar to this:
