Did you know you can make your own brown gravy, just as easily as you can using one of those little foil packets of gravy mix from the store? The big difference is in the taste. Homemade brown gravy is far superior to the artificially flavored version, and only takes three ingredients, plus salt and pepper to make.
My family loves their gravy. Mashed potatoes? Gotta have gravy. Pot roast? Yep, gravy. Meatloaf a little dry, top with a spoonful of gravy, and they won't even notice. This super easy recipe can be whipped up at a moments notice, and is absolutely delicious. You can switch up the flavor of the gravy, simply by using a different flavor of broth. Chicken broth will give you chicken gravy, and turkey broth will give you turkey gravy. Easy, right?!
