Reviews for Foolproof Gravy
"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."
"This recipe is how I learned to make perfect gravy. I was never consistent. Now it's perfect everytime. I have this recipe memorized"
"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."
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it ended up being way too thick. Next time, just don't add in all the flour mixture! Here's my full review: http://heatskitchen.blogspot.com/2013/12/turkey-gravy.html"
"Delicous and easy!"
"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."
"Great and easy"
"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."
"I have a hard time making gravy so this wasan easy one to make."
"I've always struggled with making a gravy even the most simple recipes just drive me nuts because it never works out in the end, but this one was a one hit homer...a GRAND SLAM!!! Easy to make and yummy to the taste!"
"This gravy was good and foolproof but not the best. My husband said it was ok but not like my usual (I usually make a rue with butter/flour and whisk in chicken or beef broth). I thought it was good and will make it again."
"Everyone loved it. I've been cooking Thanksgiving dinner for many years and this was easy and delicious."
"I have made this gravy 4 times, and it is unbelievably easy, just as it claims. There are no lumps and it is delicious. I like that it does not have a lot of sodium. This is a permanent recipie in our family's collection."
