Take Breakfast to the Next Level – with Gravy!

01 Jun

I’m not normally a breakfast eater.  I’ve heard all of the lines about how breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for some reason I just can’t get into it.  As a kid I loved cereal, but eventually I grew out of it.

There is one exception though – I love to eat breakfast when I’m camping.  There’s just something about bacon and eggs at the camp site that really appeal to me.

So when I saw this post about gravy over at the Personal Money Store, I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Truth be told, I can’t wait to try it either.  On the rare occasion that I actually eat breakfast at our cafeteria (only after 11am), I usually get the bacon, eggs, and  hash browns Grand Slam breakfast.  The staff always give me a strange look when I ask for gravy on it.

No one will give me a strange look at our campsite though. ;)

Here’s the basic idea:

  1. Cook your meat in a frying pan with butter or oil.  (bacon, sausage, ham, etc.)
  2. Remove the meat when it’s done.
  3. Stir some flour into the left over drippings.
  4. Add milk or broth with pepper, salt, and whatever other spices suit your taste buds.
  5. Let the gravy thicken on low heat while you cook your hash browns or toast.
  6. Add the gravy as a topper to your breakfast dishes.

It’s quite simple, but don’t forget to add the flour to your grocery list!  Special thanks to Mary Rice for sharing this great idea.

Let us know what you do with your gravy in the comments.

    I would like to add a suggestion here. Whenever I make gravy, I use cornstarch instead of flour. I mix a teaspoon or two of cornstarch (depending on how much gravy u are making) with a bit of COLD water and add it to the boiling drippings. It thickens rather quickly and I never find my gravy lumpy. This can be used for any gravy u care to make.
