I used the Pioneer powder stuff commercially for 7-8 years and yes, it was pretty good. My theory on that is you get it in every restaurant/fast food place you go in, so you are already conditioned and expect it. Nothing beats the homemade stuff when someone that knows how to make it is the one cooking.

MMmmm biscuits and gravy.

I can make milk gravy but I actually like the Pioneer mix and it's faster. So's wampums but not near as good as homemade.

I use all purpose and baking powder though. As close to my Granny's as I'll ever be able to get I suppose. Good stuff.

I miss my Grandma's(the Okie Grandma) milk gravy made from the fried chicken drippins. As close to heaven as a man ever got with a fork and a piece of wonder bread to pour it on.

The wife made breakfast for dinner last night and surprised me with some of her gravy. Gravy was made with bacon drippings and she used canned biscuits, but this fat boy was in heaven anyway.

Slick we fat boys aren't real choosy about where the biscuit come from as long as the gravy is there. And lots of it. :nod:

There's nothing wrong with canned biscuits. And I believe Bermuda grass hay would taste good with gravy on it.

I have a Brother-in-Law that tried one time to make sausage gravy, but he could never get the gravy to thicken. Sister ask him if he had put flour in. He hadn't, said he kept wondering what was wrong!

Last time I tried to make gravy which was several years ago I ended up with about 3 gallons. Too thick....too thin...too thick...too thin. :oops:
