Old Fashioned Gravy

"This is the real thing! I am from the land of meat, potatoes and gravy (Denmark) and my mom used to make this ALL THE TIME. So much so that when I was a teenager I swore that I would NEVER make this EVER. Now - of course - I truly cherish it on special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. The food in Denmark has since my childhood lightened up quite a bit and much more varied now."

directions

  • Melt butter in sauce pan until bubbly; add flour and stir well. The roux will be thick.
  • Add drippings if you have any (not needed, but makes the flavour deeper).
  • Add chicken broth 1/4 cup at a time and stir well in between addings. Before adding the last 1/2 cup make sure that the gravy comes up to a slight boil as it will get thicker and thicker. Add the last chicken broth.
  • You may find that you need to add more/less chicken broth - it will depend on how thick you want your gravy.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste - remember to add enough salt to get the full flavour of the gravy out. The 3/4 tsp is what our family likes.

    We used this recipe for our Church Thanksgiving Dinner. We made a huge pan and it was enjoyed by everyone. Made for PRMR.

    Very nice gravy. I used drippings from some oven fried chicken and it turned out very flavorful. Thanks Deantini for a nice keeper. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

    Very tasty and very easy to make! Only change is I used beef broth rather than chicken since I served it with meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.

    Great, basic gravy recipe. I wanted some gravy with chicken, but had no drippings, so this worked very well.
