This is my number one, no fail gravy recipe that I have used for well over 10 years.
GOOD GRAVY RECIPE
makes 2 cups
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 2 cups warmed milk
Melt butter over low heat; add flour, salt and pepper; stir until well blended. Cook flour mixture for 2 minutes. Gradually stir or whisk in milk and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick and smooth. Takes almost a minute to thicken up. Remove from heat and pour over biscuits. Gravy will continue to thicken as it cools down
This gravy recipe is great on mashed potatoes, too.
If you have leftover over gravy, store with plastic wrap touching the top to prevent a skin from forming on top. Reheat on low heat on the stove top or in the microwave, adding a tablespoon of milk or two to thin out the gravy.
