Mushroom gravy is a pretty classic home cook recipe. I wanted to give it a modern twist by bringing in the bacon! Because come on – everything is better with bacon. And before people come at me for that statement – yes I eat bacon on donuts and ice cream – even had it in an old fashioned! Life is better with bacon! I am lucky to have super sharp kitchen knives, so I cut the raw bacon into thin pieces. If you prefer, you can cook the bacon whole, then chop it up after. Either will get you the same bacon bits running through the gravy.

This is a very heavy rich dish. If you wanted to lighten it up some, you could swap out cauliflower for the potatoes. Rice would also work as a base really well too. This type of meal is what I like to call a Sunday Supper style meal. Its a hefty dish that you want to linger over and visit with your family and friends.

I will let you know I got two complaints from the family on this one – first – I didn’t make ENOUGH of the gravy 😂 and second – I didn’t give them bread to sop up the gravy. Yes the gravy is that good! I probably should have planned on a dinner roll with it, but we definitely had plenty to eat that night, lol.
