Great! This proves you don't need lots of butter/oil to have a delicious gravy. Thanks for sharing.

Very good. I did use 2% milk as that is all I had and the pan dripping from my fried venison which added a lot of flavor to the gravy, but even without that, this gravy is delicious and so simple to make. I had to add just a little more milk to mine as it was a little thick. This thickens up very quickly. Thanks Ms Sally Made for I Recommend

This was really easy to make, and I enjoyed it over your Chicken Fried Steak (Healthy Way). I made it with regular chicken bouillon cubes, and can't stress enough how important it is to use the low sodium.....mine was very salty! My fault since I didn't use the correct bouillon cubes. This thickens up really quickly and looks great. Thanks for sharing!
