GOOD GRAVY -- BONNIE'S
Photos and this humble recipe are my own.
- tablespoons butter
- tablespoons flour
- 2 or more
- cups broth, chicken, turkey, beef, or use canned broth
- teaspoon garlic powder
- teaspoon paprika
- teaspoon kitchen bouquet
- salt and pepper to taste
You can add a can of drained mushrooms and simmer them with the gravy, or use fresh mushrooms. I make my gravy in a heavy saucepan. This works better than making it in a skillet if you want to slide sliced cooked turkey or beef in the gravy to warm it up.
Tip: When you have brown bits from frying chicken or meat, you can substitute 3 tablespoons of the oil and brown bits in place of the butter. There is a lot of flavor in the oil that you cook meat in, and be sure to include any brown bits.
