To make Paula Deen's milk gravy recipe, heat 1/4 cup bacon grease in a cast iron skillet on a low temperature. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour for one minute, until the consistency is smooth and bubbly. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups of warm milk and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer for five minutes until the gravy thickens. Add additional milk, if desired, to adjust thickness. Mix in 2 tablespoons of butter, and season with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
Paula Deen's sausage gravy is made by cooking 1 pound of ground sausage, 4 slices of cut bacon, 1/2 diced onion, and 2 cloves of minced garlic on medium heat until the sausage browns and crumbles. Stirring continuously, add 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of black pepper. Gradually add 2 cups of half and half until gravy has thickened, and then add 2 tablespoons of butter.
Paula Deen's chocolate gravy requires heating 1/3 stick of butter on low heat and adding 2/3 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons each of flour and cocoa. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of milk to break up lumps and stir until gravy thickens.
