This is the recipe I’ve used for years now. It’s easy and I always have all the ingredients on hand already, so I can make it whenever I need to.
- 4 Tbsp. butter
- 4 Tbsp. flour
- 3 cups milk
- 1 tsp. salt
- Pepper to taste (It really depends on how peppery you like your gravy, I like mine to be pretty peppery. I also usually put a few shakes of Season All in, just for that little extra flavor)
Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Cook for about a minute, and gradually whisk in the milk. Stir in salt and pepper. Cook until thickened, stirring frequently.
