Biscuits and Gravy

Ok. So the other night I made Biscuits and Gravy. The biscuits were from a can but only because I haven't ever made biscuits. So that will be something I will have to try. But for now, I can give you a recipe for Gravy. Delicious! This is a sausage gravy, but I'm sure if you would rather have bacon then that should work as well.

1 Sausage Tube (12 oz.)
1 Gallon of Milk
Cornstarch (thickening agent)

Cook Sausage thoroughly. While cooking, chop sausage into small pieces. After sausage is finished cooking, remove sausage from pan, leaving grease in the pan. Turn heat to low, adding 1Tbsp Flour and 1Tbsp Cornstarch at a time, alternating the two. After grease is absorbed, add Milk. Add about 6-8 Cups of Milk. Stir Flour mixture while adding Milk. Turn Heat to medium. Mix about 4 Tbsp Cornstarch to about 1 1/2 Cups Water. Add 1/2 of the Cornstarch mixture. If Gravy is not as thick as you like, add the rest of the Cornstarch mixture. You should be able to cut down the middle of the pan with a big spoon and be able to see the bottom of the pan for a second or two.
