How to make it

  • Bring to a simmer, whisking, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste, and add pepper....salt not needed.
  • You May Add Sauteed Onions or Mushrooms to This Also!!!

    This is a good one. I love mashed potatoes and gravy but sometimes don't have the meat drippings to make the gravy

    Mmmmm..the dijon mustard is tops with me!! I like to save the cooking water from my roasts and use that for gravy, too! But, as we all know...broth is always available on the shelf at home :o)
