  1. In a skillet cook the sausage or bacon until done. Set aside.
  2. In the same pan pour the milk in with the left over grease from the sausage or bacon. Add the butter.
  3. In a small container mix the flour with a 1/2 cup of cold water and shake vigorously until mixed. Pour into the pan with the milk. Add salt & pepper to taste (I add a 1/2 tsp pepper here. I like pepper! :) ) Whisk until blended.
  4. Put sausage or bacon back into the pan with the milk. Continue whisking gently until sauce is nearly as thick as you like. Don't cook the sauce until it's super thick because it will thicken as it cools.
  5. Slice the croissant in half length wise and lay open faced on a plate. Pour about 1 cup of the sauce over the croissant evenly. Enjoy!

    Hi My Cook Book. I like your screen name! Buttermilk biscuits work, but a croissant brings out the buttery taste in the gravy.
