Apple Butter & Onion Gravy
This onion gravy recipe is so creamy and good I could eat it like soup. But it's best draped over mashed potatoes and other Thanksgiving fixings. For reheating the next day, if it's too thick, just stir in a bit of milk. — Mindie Hilton, Susanville, California

Great, unique flavor. I'm always looking for gravy recipes to make when I fry a turkey (no drippings). Definitely will make again, especially when I want to wow the crowd.
