Maple Bacon Gravy

Love is in the air.

Maple Bacon Gravy and Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits you can find south of the Mason Dixon Line!

It’s Valentine’s Day next week yall in case you have forgotten. Now even though John and I don’t really celebrate it -occasionally we decide to put the kids down early and a have nice fancy meal to ourselves. This could include mushroom Risotto or Creamy Madeira Mushrooms and Port Wine Filet Mignon. I know you are thinking okay great where are those recipes?

But if you also visit here often you know the way to my guy’s heart is through breakfast. Both guys technically. So if your guy is like mine you can him over with this Maple Bacon Gravy.

Nothing is more comforting for breakfast than some gravy and biscuits!

When John and I got married we took a trip to this hunting lodge. And while I am not a hunter – John also knows he can win me over with some food. So while he hunted I got to kick back and relax and talk a bunch with the amazing chef there. One of the dishes he made for us one morning was Maple Bacon Gravy.

Now in the South most people like their gravy with sausage and more pepper. So be fair warned this is a little more on the sweet side. But you can also cut the maple syrup in half if you so desire (but I recommend trying it this way first). And what is gravy without homemade buttermilk biscuits? Even though I’m a Southern girl I had never made gravy or biscuits from scratch until I married John.

Maple Bacon Gravy and Biscuits - a Southern favorite

So instead of spending oodles of money on your honey (like my rhyme?) surprise your loved one with breakfast in bed with some Biscuits and Maple Bacon Gravy.

I love this idea! I'll definitely have to try making it for breakfast some time. Just maybe not for Valentine's Day because ... I'm really not all about getting up any earlier than I have to. ;) But this could be the perfect recipe for Mother's Day!
