  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 15 minutes. Remove the bacon to cool, leaving the drippings in the skillet.
  2. Stir the vegetable oil and flour into the bacon drippings. Cook and stir until the flour has turned nearly as brown as the bacon, about 5 minutes.
