  1. Bake biscuits according to package directions.
  2. Cook the bacon in a deep skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate and keep the grease in the pan. Gradually stir in the flour so that no lumps form, then mix in the milk, continuing to cook and stir until thickened. Crumble the bacon into the gravy and season with salt and pepper before serving.
  3. Split biscuits in half, top with gravy, and enjoy!

I grew up on this! Most people know of sausage gravy and biscuits, but I had not until I was married with children of my own and moved to North Carolina. In my house, we always ate bacon gravy...

Good starter recipe. It's important to have enough bacon to yield the amount of grease needed. 4 slices is a bit on the low side. I usually buy an entire pack of thick bacon and make it all. Aft...

I just love it how people blame the recipe giver for their inability to make gravy. Even if you had her sitting right their next to you it wouldn't guarantee that you'd be able to make it! Gravy...

This was really good, but I added a few things. I made gravy as directed, but I put an egg scramble on the biscuits before I topped them with the gravy and it was SO good. I sauteed pieces of h...

I really wanted biscuits and gravy for dinner the other night but didn't have the sausage I normally use so I tried this recipe with bacon. I pretty much doubled all ingredients to make enough f...

This was a horrible recipe. Following the instructions exactly, I ended up with a pan full of Elmers Glue! Slightly browned of course.

I followed the recipe, but crumbled the whole package of bacon into the gravy, I think I am now getting jewelry for my birthday.
