My family likes this tasty gravy as much as, or better than turkey gravy. You can add variations to suit whatever you are serving it with. We particularly like it with Lentil and Wild Rice Loaf (recipe 265288), but it is also great on mashed potatoes or even meat. I found this on another web site and hand copied it without noting where it came from, so I'm sorry I cannot give credit to the proper source.
