  1. Directions Leave 3 tablespoons fat drippings in frying pan in which meat was cooked. Add flour and brown slightly while stirring. Remove from heat and add milk, stirring well to blend. Return to heat; cook and stir until mixture is thick and smooth. Season to taste. Serve with potatoes, biscuits, or cornbread. Note: This gravy is usually made from fried beef drippings, but other meat drippings are commonly used. If the meat is ham, this gravy is called "red-eye" gravy in New England; it is served over the ham slice.
