White Gravy with Carrots & Hard Boiled Eggs

My stepfather use to make this all the time. We usually had it served over boiled potatoes and had it for the dinner meal. Since I was wanting to have it for brunch, I served it over a biscuit with browned ham. I know most would think the combination of white gravy with carrots and hard boiled eggs is a bit odd. It’s very good, you really should give it a try. Another great recipe for left over Easter ham.

Since I was wanting to have it for brunch, I served it over a biscuit with browned ham. I know most would think the combination of white gravy with carrots and hard boiled eggs is a bit odd. It's very good, you really should give it a try. Another great recipe for left over Easter ham.
