I am really trying to watch our calories and was so excited to find this recipe. I was very surprised as was my husband how good it was! My children even enjoyed it.

Unfortunately instead of gravy I made slime w/ the recipe... maybe it was my home-made chicken broth instead of using boxed/canned broth?

This was awesome. Though I didn't have any mushrooms on hand and used dried parsley (1 T.) and added some finely chopped carrots for color. This is the best gravy recipe I've ever tasted. Thanks so much for posting.
