White Gravy

Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin I didn’t know what I was missing not having ever had ‘White gravy’.  My mom and step dad moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas when I was a teen and that’s when my love affair with southern cooking began.  This is a recipe I got from my Home Economics teacher my senior year of high school.

½ c fat (Crisco, bacon grease etc)

½ flour

4 c milk (or 2 c milk, 2 c water)

Salt & Pepper, to taste


Heat fat in skillet and add flour and stir until smooth – but do not let brown.   Whisk in milk and then add salt and pepper to taste.  Simmer and stir until desired consistency.
