"I was looking for some help to make a rich gravy for Thanksgiving turkey dinner. This one was delicious. I love the white pepper seasoning, and the milk makes it very creamy and delicious."

"I made this at Christmas dinner, it was bland and very light color. My own homemade gravy is better and will make that next time."

"Very easy and tasty; and I didn't add any bouillon or broth. I had an herb rub on my turkey, and sliced celery and onion underneath it."

"Just as advertised, foolproof. For those of you that said it lacked flavor you wanted, that is easy to fix. Your gravy will leap up the flavor scale by what you place under the turkey skin and over the outside of the bird. We use a herbed mayo under the skin and all around the outside. You can also rub the outside w/ bacon drippings as well. Crisp skin and great tasting gravy reguardless of your prep choices."

"This gravy was a hit for our Thanksgiving meal - and since I've tried it, we always make this gravy for Thanksgiving. Sometimes it turns out a little thick so I think it with a little more stock. Great flavor!"

"I've been searching for a gravy recipe that was easy to make during the last minute rush of preparing a holiday dinner. I also tend to make minor errors in recipes so the foolproof name attracted me. I've made this twice now and it tastes great. I've been lucky enough to have plenty of turkey juices so I haven't had to supplement with chicken stock."
