PREP TIME: 0 HOURS 10 MINS

TOTAL TIME: 0 HOURS 30 MINS

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. milk
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Vegetable oil

FOR GRAVY

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 c.Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch paprika (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place flour in a separate shallow bowl and season generously with black pepper. Dredge bacon in flour first, then in egg mixture, then back in flour.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil (it should reach 1″ up the side of pan) until a pinch of flour starts to bubble when added to oil. Add bacon and fry until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool slightly.
  3. Make gravy: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour and cook until golden and bubbling, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk in milk and bring to a simmer. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika, if using. Bring mixture to a simmer, and cook until slightly thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. (It will thicken more as it cools!) Remove from heat.
  4. Serve bacon with gravy on the side for dipping.
