The secret to a good tasting gravy is two things. #1 - lightly browning your roux and #2 - the flavor of your pan drippings. For more flavor, I did mix in more pan drippings with my broth. Very good. Read More

Just stupendous. The first time I used dried sage and it was terrific. I used real broth. The second time I used bouillon broth and it was not as good. Stick with the real stuff. I also did not ever add the giblets since I find eating innards to be somewhat unappetizing. Note that this recipe will only really supply a very small group with gravy about 2 people -- at least double it if serving any amount of people at all. Read More

I am 60 years old and have tried every giblet gravy recipe known to man and never been satisfied with the result. THIS one is PERFECT!! I did end up having to had a touch of cornstarch to get it to thicken enough but other than that - for the first time - wonderful! Read More
