How to make it

  • Start by putting the oil in a BIG skillet, I use an iron skillet but you can use any kind.
  • Heat the oil on high for a minute or so until hot then turn down the heat to medium and add a little flour.
  • Stir real well to get out the lumps,you want this mixture to be a little thick but not real thick.
  • If there is too much oil showing add a little more flour.
  • If it gets to thick while frying just add a little more oil.
  • Fry, stirring almost constantly until mixture gets good and brown but be careful not to burn.
  • When you get the mixture browned good start adding the evaporated milk and water (combined before heating the oil) a little at a time.
  • Stir and as the gravy starts to boil keep adding the evapoared milk.
  • If the gravy is still too thick and you have put in all the evaporated milk and water mixture add some sweet milk until you get a good consistency then let the mixture come to a soft boil and this whole time keep stirring.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes with this soft boil then pour into a big serving bowl.
  • This will take practice and you may burn a batch or two but the final results will be great tasteing.
  • Add salt and pepper to tase after you get the biscuits crumbled in.
  • If you think the gravy is still to thick you can add a little milk to thin it out while it is in the serving bowl, just stir very well before serving.

    Sweet milk just means regular milk, not buttermilk.

    Sounds great. If I want what tastes like homemade biscuits I mix up a batch of Bisquick biscuits. I also buy the frozen biscuits at the store. Tast just like homemade and faster.
