Browned gravy creates the base for rich Caramelized Onion Gravy. It retains all the savory flavor of traditional gravy but without all the fat.

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Browned Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon jarred chicken soup base
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Sauté onion in hot oil in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown.

  2. Place Browned Flour in a bowl; gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Add milk mixture to onion, and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in soup base and pepper until blended.

  3. Note: We tested with Superior Touch Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base.
