I haven't made it yet. It sounds tasty, but I'm at a loss to why someone would even think to giving a turkey gravy recipe for only 2 cups. That would only be enough for maybe 3 or 4 people, and if you only had 4 people, you most likely wouldn't be making a turkey. I know I can double or triple the recipe; just saying.

#1 secret to making lump free gravy -- add the salt to the flour. You will not have any lumps if you do this.

A nice simple, but tasty, gravy. It's like the kind my grandmother always made.
