Everything is Better with Bacon Gravy.

Nothing makes anything better like bacon. Seriously, bacon is the ultimate Unami flavor. Nobody does bacon better than the south.  Here is a bacon gravy that literally is great with anything!

You can pour over scrambled eggs and biscuits. If you make meatloaf, pour this over it and elevate the flavor. You can even it pour over roasted veggies to get your kids to eat their veggies.
