TOO BAD I DON'T HAVE ANY SOUND!

I had some left over pork chops from dinner and decided to make biscuits and gravy to go with them for breakfast. It's been years since I made either, but Mom used to make it alot. I used bacon grease instead of sausage for my gravy which tasted good, but was lumpy. I knew where to get a "lesson" on making gravy. Some of our family receipes are the same as yours! I think I had the heat too high when I added the milk, and maybe the roux too thick. Now I know equal parts fat and flour and low heat when adding milk. Thanks, Jamie! I wish your family the very best!

My Mom grew up on a farm so we grew up eating ALOT of gracy dishes. My sisters didn't want to help in the kitchen so I was the one who learned how to cook at Mom's elbow. I'm still trying to trace recipes for things she made now that she's not with us anymore and your sausage gravy is the same as she used to make with hamburger because sausage cost too much when you're raising 5 kids on an Air Force Tech Sargent's salary. Now all I have to do is master biscuits. grin

Worked a Fire Lookout Tower back in the 70s and 80s and practally lived off Poor Man's gravy. Sunday mornings in the fall of the year a big skillet of fried squirrell and biscuits and gravy was the way to start the day. I do miss those days !!

Thanks Jamie,it's been so long since I've tried to make Country Sausage Gravy that I was afraid to try. My mom use to make it a lot when I was growing up. So thank you now I can remember her all the more.

Hi Jamie, What an AWESOME video!!! We just love biscuits and gravy. Will need to make this sometime soon. Am planning to watch your new TV show this Saturday at 10:30 AM. Somehow, I always seem to have some plans and miss it, but not this Saturday. All for now. Keep up the good work!!! Take Care. Debbie Fannin

That is just how I make it and it is always a hit! Someone asked how much milk. I use 2 cups of milk for 1/4 cup flour. And salt and pepper to taste. So the writer who asked about how much milk for 1 teaspoon flour, it would only be about 2 tablespoons of milk - not hardly enough for a good bite!

Bobby, I enjoyed this video, it brought memories of Sunday dinner and the good ol' days. As I grew up, and learned how to cook from my mom, she used this basic recipe to make Fried Pork Chop Gravy, Fried Chicken Gravy and the Sausage gravy. My father was in the Navy during World War two, and he said they ate this gravy made with hamburger on toast and called it SOS. I'll leave it to you to figure out what that acronym stands for. I'm thankful my mom taught me how to cook all variations of this gravy. As well as her turkey gravy made with corn starch. I passed these recipes down to my girls and my son. It's an awesome gift my Mom gave me, and your Mama gave you isn't it. Life is good smile

Paula, I have your Southern Cooking Bible and it has already become my go to cookbook. I love southern cooking but could never find down home comfort food cooking. I started watching you on Foodnetwork and printing out your recipes. I have finally found the southern cooking I've been looking for. I hope I will have many years of going to your website, cookbooks and shows and learning how to fix southern comfort food. Keep up the good work and passing down those delicious recipes. Your friend in cooking, Tina Lund

If I used 1 teaspoon each of butter and flour, how much milk would I use to make a gravy?

Jamie Just watching you make this brought back so many happy memories. My grandma used to own an old-fashioned hotel down in the south and she served this to her guests. Everyone loved it. I think she used evaporated milk with water that made it real rich and creamy. And sometimes she made it with bacon, too. What I wouldn't give to pull up a chair in her kitchen today...

Hey Jamie, loved the recipe. Have you ever tryed it with hot dogs. Just cut the hotdogs in bite sized pieces, fry in butter or oil, the rest is the same. I was a divorced mother of three and had to strech every dollar. But my kids still say they loved the "Hot dog gravey".

My mom has been gone since 99, and made a great white gravy. She would make it more often with hamburger, even venison. I never learned how from her, and I've been wanting to know for a long time. HAve always loved it. I am so glad this site has web videos aI can refer to and plop the laptop right there on the kitchen counter with me , SO I do not feel like I am going at it all alone! thank you Deens! Jenny B.
