Truck Stop Gravy

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by foodtvfan

Another golden oldie recipe from a handwritten recipe card from 1960. A simple combination of beef broth and mushroom soup. You can serve it with meatloaf or hamburger patties for hot hamburger sandwiches. Or just top some french fries for 'chips and gravy'. Or use it to make hot beef, hot chicken or turkey sandwiches with leftovers. Slice cooked meat, place on a slice of bread, pour gravy on top. Add seasonings to taste.

This is a great gravy! I will cut down on the broth a bit next time - we like gravy a bit thicker. This was great on rice with Recipe #330299 and a side of veggies. I like how versatile this recipe is, like others mentioned. You can add any veggies and it would really be good on any meat. Yum! Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks foodtvfan! :)
