Dolly Parton's Milk Gravy
print recipe

Every now and then I'll make my husband, Carl, an extra special breakfast. Some of our favorites are Southern staples like sausage patties and flaky biscuits, and this creamy milk gravy is the perfect topping.

Ingredients

    • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2½ cups whole milk
    • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
    • biscuits and sausage patties, for serving

Preparation

In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, thyme and pepper. Gradually whisk in milk and cream until smooth.

Pour the mixture into skillet or saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes, or until thickened.

Serve over biscuits and sausage patties.
