  1. My gravy came out just wonderful, my husband and I loved it . I just want to say Thank You and Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year's
  2. I added a little chicken boullion and Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb and the gravy was AWESOME.
  3. This gravy is fab. I used home-made stock and seasoned it with about 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. It would be a fab quick-cook gravy for Thanksgiving. For tonight, after I saw how good it was, I cut/ground up a hot and a sweet cased sausage, and added it after the gravy was made. It is obscene. Spoon/bowl obscene.
  4. This is a great, easy way to make gravy when you don't have drippings as I didn't have any to add to my roasted turkey I had frozen/reheated-very tasty and my family raved. Can add a little cream to make it more milk based. It has become a staple recipe.
  5. Great gravy recipe. I added onion and celery some chicken bouillon cubes (2) and a little extra broth and butter. It was so good and I normally buy jar gravy well not after this.


  1. Increase butter by a tbsp, use real butter, unsalted, used 1 can chicken broth low sodium, plus a cup of water, add half a packet of oxo boullion No need for chicken drippings this way
  2. I made this gravy and it came out just perfect! It was so easy and delicious!
