Once the raw flour taste and butter cooks (around 2-3 minutes) it will start to smell toasty. It is then the perfect time to slowly pour in the milk, whisking constantly. The gravy will start to instantly thicken as the milk is poured.
If you have leftover bacon grease in your skillet, you can combine it with the butter to add extra flavor to the gravy.
If your gravy is too thick, whisk in a little more milk until it reaches the desired consistency.
If your gravy becomes lumpy, you can strain it through a sieve. Lumpy gravy is usually caused by adding too much milk at once and not whisking frequently.
If you're using salted butter, you may not need any salt added to the gravy, but you will still need the black pepper.
