Ham Gravy

Yield:
12 servings and then some!
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Ham cooking juices
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, more or less to taste
  • 4 to 6 cups whole milk
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • Biscuits, for serving
Directions

Into the pan that the ham was cooked in (or use bacon grease if you don't have ham juices), add the butter. Once melted, add 1/4 cup of the flour and whisk to combine. Continue adding flour, whisking constantly, until a smooth paste is achieved. Cook the roux over a medium heat until you get a nice deep golden color, about 3 minutes. Add the milk, whisking the whole time to prevent lumps forming. Cook until thick and season to taste. Serve over biscuits!

    Thank you, thank you, Ree, for the great ham gravy recipe. I saw all that wonderful ham juice just sitting there, so googled ham gravy and there you were, waiting for me!! I used half 2% milk and half half-and-half. Delicious!!
    I have made a similar recipe for several years. Now I have an actual recipe to follow. I have always used milk in my ham gravy and it is always a hit. Thanks Ree!!
    This gravy was so good and very easy to make. I will be saving this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
    Never made ham gravy before, it was delicious! Thanks for the idea.
    I made this gravy with our ham for Easter. I've never made a "ham" gravy before so I was very excited to try it. It had a really good flavor but I'm just not that crazy about a milk gravy. It wasn't as good on the ham but it was yummy on the bisquits, though.
