Easy Meatless Gravy

I went for years not making my own gravy. I never could figure it out and it always had those nasty flour lumps in it that tasted so bad! Well let me tell you, this was the first and the only gravy I ever succeeded at and that I still make today. What I like about this recipe is that it is a basic recipe for turkey, beef or chicken gravy. Even if I do not bake a chicken, I use canned chicken broth with butter as my fat to make Chicken Gravy and so on.

  1. I always make my own gravy and have done for as long as I can remember …I use homemade stock, balsamic and a little Worcester sauce and maybe meat juice or the potato or vegetable water..I thicken with flour if needed….It is so easy isn’t it Diane 🙂

    • It really is Carol! Everyone tried to teach me how to make it when I was younger but never with a recipe. It was a little here and little there so I gave up. Then I figured it out when reading an article an a magazine, it just clicked. Definitely tastier with the homemade stock and more ingredients but this is a great recipe for beginners to start as it worked for me! Have great weekend Carol!

  2. Thank you so much for this blog post. I thought I was the only person who never master basic gravy preparation. I will definitely be trying this. The only “help” I was ever offered after saying it always came out with flour lumps was to try using corn starch instead of flour.

    • I hear good things about cornstarch but this is the only one I was able to make perfectly! It is meant to be a beginners gravy. Once you make this you can start exchanging ingredients if you want. I love to make my turkey gravy this way the day before the big meal…one less thing to worry about the day of! Just heat it up and serve when ready.
