A creamy and peppery white gravy that will sure to please everyone! This goes great on fries, mashed potatoes, and meats! If you are wary of adding all of the pepper, add a teaspoon at a time and taste. I like mine really peppery, so I always use the 2 tablespoons. My mother doesn't like it so peppery, so she tends to use 1 or 1 1/2 tablespoons. The best part about this recipe is that you can adjust the spice to your liking!

This turned out good as written. It does thicken up quick after you take it off the heat so move fast. Read More

I was looking for a recipe for white milk gravy and this picture looked the closest to my memory of what mom used to make. Holy cow this is WAYYYYY too peppery. If I ever make this again no way will I use more than 1 TEASPOON of pepper in it. 1.5 tablespoons is ridiculous unless you're really into hot spicy foods. In its favor the consistency and thickness was exactly what I hoped for. Read More

Tastes good. Too salty for my taste. I put in a little over a teaspoon of pepper which was perfect for us. If you make the recipe for fewer servings I made it for four make sure you don't heat the milk in the microwave for a full 2 minutes. I heated for 50 seconds and it was fine. Good quick pepper gravy.

It was good, though quite salty. I would add less salt next time unless I knew it only was going on something unsalted like a bisquit. Read More
