Milk Gravy (Paula Deen)

Milk Gravy (Paula Deen) created by puppitypup

My grandmother used to make the BEST milk gravy! She would serve it over chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes. Unfortunatley, I never got her original recipe. I came across this recipe in a "Cooking with Paula Deen" magazine and I think this is very close to what my grandmother used to make!

  • Heat 1-2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Whisk in flour, whisking constantly for about 1 minute.

    Not much taste. I don't know what I did wrong, but it wasn't great.

    Initial recipe i made to the T. Was way too thin in the end result, ended up making another batch. What's cooking without altering the recipe a little bit, eh? Only used about 1 1/2-2C of milk and a little more Veggie oil. Also was using frozen chicken(Smite me later) so i had no access to grease etc. Threw in some bacon salt, celery seed, minced onion and the pepper. Tasted delicious, nice country gravy feel to it, but a little thinner. Went well on the potatoes and the chicken.

    Have patience? After 20 minutes of whisking and following the directions to a T...I have nothing more than warm milk with some pepper in it. It will not thicken. I expected more from Paula Deen.
