White Gravy



Making gravy is a simple process if you following some basic rules.  When making gravy, you always use equal amounts of fat and flour.  This is very important, so always measure carefully.  If you use too much flour, you will drown out the taste of the fat, which is where the flavor comes from.  Always, always, brown the flour in the drippings.  Then, for each 2 Tablespoons of drippings and flour you will add 1 cup of liquid.



5 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
2 ˝ cups of milk

Cooking Method

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and add your salt and pepper. You can add whatever amount of those you like.

Add in your flour and whisk until combined.

Then add the milk very slowly, while whisking constantly, until well blended.

Cook for about 8-10 more minutes. Make sure you are whisking about every 2 minutes during cooking to ensure that the gravy is smooth and doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

I use this same recipe and add in cooked, crumbled sausage to serve over fresh biscuits. It is delicious!
