White Gravy Southern Comfort Food

Hi Guys, this recipe is true to my heart.  This is something that my father use to make when he would fry up his mouth water chicken.  He would use the drippings from the chicken and made this wonderful tasting gravy.

It took me a few times of making this gravy to get it just like his, but I did it.  Below is the recipe that I have enjoyed growing up and throughout my adulthood.  We don’t make this recipe often but when we do it is such a treat.




3 tbsp. flour

Drippings in pan

2 cups milk

Salt and Pepper to taste


With remaining dripping in pan only use about 2 tablespoons of the oil and remove the rest.

Heat the drippings in pan and then add in the flour and stir until the flour is fully incorporated into the oil.  Cook this for about 3 minutes or until flour is cook.

Now add in the mild stir constantly until milk begins to thicken.   Thicken the gravy to your likeness and then add in salt and pepper to taste.

Serve over mashed potatoes
