Poor Man's Biscuits and Gravy


A favorite of my father!

Both of my parents were familiar with this, but I have never found anyone else who makes it. My wife can't stand it, so I hope to pass it on. Thanks ~ Joe


  • 6 boiled eggs, peeled and diced
  • 1 pound bacon
  • About 1/2 gallon milk
  • Flour
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Fry bacon until crispy and save drippings. Crumble and set aside.
  2. Place drippings in a 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. Stir in and brown flour, adding enough to absorb drippings. Add about 1/2 gallon of milk and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and, while gravy is thickening, add diced eggs and crumbled bacon. Season to taste (we like lots of pepper). Serve over split biscuits.
