Nothing screams southern like biscuits and gravy.  If you add a sliced fresh tomato, hot coffee, scrambled eggs and bacon, you’ve got yourself a down-home breakfast!


1/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
5 Tablespoons self-rising flour
2 cups milk

In a skillet (I use a cast iron skillet) melt shortening. Sprinkle in flour salt and pepper and stir with a wire whisk to prevent lumps.  Cook over medium high heat until slightly browned.  Pour in milk and reduce heat to medium.  Stir constantly until gravy has thickened.  Pour into a bowl and serve immediately.  Keep in mind that gravy will thicken slightly as it sits.
