    Deantini's Note:

    This is the real thing! I am from the land of meat, potatoes and gravy (Denmark) and my mom used to make this ALL THE TIME. So much so that when I was a teenager I swore that I would NEVER make this EVER. Now - of course - I truly cherish it on special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. The food in Denmark has since my childhood lightened up quite a bit and much more varied now.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt butter in sauce pan until bubbly; add flour and stir well. The roux will be thick.
    2. 2
      Add drippings if you have any (not needed, but makes the flavour deeper).
    3. 3
      Add chicken broth 1/4 cup at a time and stir well in between addings. Before adding the last 1/2 cup make sure that the gravy comes up to a slight boil as it will get thicker and thicker. Add the last chicken broth.
    4. 4
      You may find that you need to add more/less chicken broth - it will depend on how thick you want your gravy.
    5. 5
      Add salt and pepper to taste - remember to add enough salt to get the full flavour of the gravy out. The 3/4 tsp is what our family likes.

      We used this recipe for our Church Thanksgiving Dinner. We made a huge pan and it was enjoyed by everyone. Made for PRMR.

      Very tasty and very easy to make! Only change is I used beef broth rather than chicken since I served it with meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.
