I was looking for a gravy that was different and gourmet. This gracy perfectly fit the bill. My family raved about it. There was very little left over because they enjoyed it so much. The aroma from this gravy was wonderful. The consistency was excellent as was the color. I will be making this every Thanksgiving. Thank you for the fantastic recipe!

All the adults enjoyed this gravy at our Thanksgiving table. The kids, however, didn't like it. It is easy and most people have these ingredients on hand. I will make this again.

I have made this gravy numerous times since finding it on Recipezaar. It is super easy to make, not intimidating like many gravies, and oh, so flavorful! It has been a huge hit at my past 2 Thanksgiving dinners.
