Tomato Gravy for BiscuitsFrom chefjeb 10 years ago
How to make it
- Heat oil in deep skillet (cast iron works great) until just hot. This stuff will grow and you need to make sure your pan is deep enough that it will not overflow. Add flour evenly and stir constantly with a wooden spoon, being careful not to burn. This is the roux. It should be blond colored. Add tomatoes and juice and stir to stop roux from cooking.
- Add milk slowly stirring constantly until blended and smooth. You may need more milk to get consistency that you want. Add tomatoes with a little juice and on low heat continue cooking for about five minutes.
- salt and pepper to taste
- Ladle over split biscuits
- Note: This makes a lot and recipe can be reduced.
