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!
