  • 4 tablespoons pan drippings and browned bits
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 13 ounces evaporated milk


  1. Heat fat moderately; stir in flour. Mixture should be thin - not cakey or oily. Cook until medium brown, stirring constantly.
  2. Add pepper and salt. Working very quickly, add warm water; stir thoroughly; let bubble.
  3. Add evaporated milk. Lower heat and cook to desired thickness, stirring almost constantly. If necessary to thin at this point, add warm water.
