Step 2: The Instructions:
Cut bacon into 1/2 inch pieces.
Brown bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, about 15 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Measure the grease leftover from the bacon and then add 4 tablespoons back into the skillet. (See note below)
Over medium-high heat whisk in the flour and let it cook until bubbly, about one minute. Add the milk and let the mixture thicken, whisking constantly, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the bacon back in, add pepper and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
