  2. If using hamburg, drain grease well.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste and a small amount of the gravy. (just enough to moisten.).
  4. Cool.
  5. While meat mixture is cooling, mix Bisquick and milk.
  6. Form a ball and roll out into a 8 X 12 rectangle.
  7. Spread cooled meat mixture over rectangle and roll up, jelly roll style, rolling from the 12" side.
