Ingredients:  
2-4 pieces bacon
White Flour
2% Milk (could be 8-10 cups depending on how much gravy you need)

Directions:
Directions:
Fry 2-4 pieces of bacon in a large skillet and remove bacon when done and spoon a small amount of white flour into the grease until the flour sticks together in 10 or more small balls and continue cooking the flourballs until they are dark brown and nearly fried (you may need to add a little more flour while cooking).

Then turn heat to medium/high and pour 1 cup of 2 percent milk into the skillet and whisk frequently until the flourballs break up and once the mix begins to bubble/boil, it will thicken and then add more milk in smaller increments (half cup or so at a time) and whisk unil it boils and repeat the process with 5-10 milk injections.

Add salt and pepper throughout to taste and note you could use 8-10 cups of milk if you need a lot of gravy and this goes well with German mashed potatoes.

Personal Notes:
Andy has tried to win a contest pitting Nana's (Ron's mother, Jean Scharf's) gravy vs. Gram's (Jane McWilliams). Jean is doomed to lose as long as the gathering is mostly McWilliams...if it were a Scharf family gathering, no doubt the outcome would swing in Jean's direction.
