Lord Honey, biscuits and gravy are a Southern & Appalachian breakfast staple. We love 'em so much we eat it for supper ever' chance we get. No matter what y'all call it--sawmill gravy, white gravy, breakfast gravy, etc...there ain't nothin' better to spoon over a biscuit or ladle on country fried steak and mashed taters than a good ol' fashion gravy--like granny used to make.
