    uberivy's Note:

    This is a fantastic alternative to traditional giblet gravy-- the mushroom pieces take the place of giblets or hard-boiled egg pieces (for the others out there who are squeamish about the old-fashioned version) and the flavor adds a wonderful savory complement to any holiday dish. I've been making this for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for years now, and we always drown turkey, potatoes, stuffing, biscuits--you name it--in this gravy. It's slightly creamy, fragrant, and has a beautiful flavor that adds something lovely without overpowering. It heats up nicely with leftovers, as well! (I adapted it slightly from a cookbook so many years ago now that I can't remember where it came from.)
