It's All Gravy, Baby!

Through all the various dietary restrictions that I've been on over the years, whether it was omnivore, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan, gravy has remained one of my favorite condiments of all time.  It adds moisture and flavor without being too overpowering.  I'll eat any kind of gravy, any time of the day, with just about any salty dish!

Foods that I enjoy gravy with:









Mashed Potatoes


 

 












Biscuits















Chicken Fried Steak



 











Turkey

 












French Fries (see my poutine review!)

 













Rad Na









There are plenty of different kinds of gravy out there; egg gravy, tomato gravy, red-eye gravy and even chocolate gravy, but my favorite will always be the good ole standard stuff that tops turkey and mashed potatoes.  It's so good on a ton of other dishes, too.  Mmmmmm!

Gravy is readily available premade in jars to be heated up, or in granule or powder form to be mixed with water.  However, making gravy from scratch is so easy that you might as well.  Not only will it have less junk ingredients in it, but you can also get it to taste exactly the way you like it as well as be able to earn bragging rights! 

Below are the ingredients to my favorite, super simple gravy recipe:
Notice that there are no measurements.  How much of each ingredient you use depends on how you prefer the taste and thickness of your gravy.  And the best part is that this recipe can be easily made vegetarian or vegan.  If you want your gravy to be a little thicker, add some starch.  It can also be flavored with extra ingredients like minced onions and garlic, pepper and bacon.  Whatever I add into it, the gravy only takes literally a couple of minutes to whip up.

With a recipe so simple for something so delicious, it really is all gravy, baby! :)

Holy...I'm practically drooling over here! You did it again, Debbie!! Where I'm from we call fries with cheese and gravy "disco fries". Pretty darn delicious. BTW, I'm happy to see that you too make a "lake" with mashed potatoes! That's the best way. :)
November 09, 2009
Thanks, lady! Disco fries? I like that! :D I didn't actually take that picture (photo is linked to original web page though!), but I do make a crater in my mashed potatoes for corn, cheese, gravy and what have you. I like eating it from the inside out :)

I'm sure the vegan/vegetarian crowd will appreciate your recipe for them! :) I like it the good 'ole fashioned carnivore style. Great review, except I hate you for the pictures. I'm in a body-composite adjustment phase and this is tempting stuff!
November 09, 2009
Thanks! And all that diet stuff is for after the New Year; we're allowed to pig out during the holidays ;D

Apparently, I started early. I saw some footage of me in my short film that's in editing and...uh...not good! Time for some damage control BEFORE the holidays or it will be trouble.

LOL, fine, fine, but at least gorge yourself during Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner! ;P
