Cream Gravy

Serve with vegetables, pasta, or chicken. If you have drippings from fried chicken or other meat, you can substitute those for the butter.


Makes 3/4 cup

Recipe from

Southern Living


1 cup milk
1 (1/4-inch-thick) onion slice
1 fresh parsley sprig
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
Dash of nutmeg


Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil, and remove from heat. Pour milk mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a small bowl, reserving the hot milk and discarding solids.

Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in reserved hot milk and cook, whisking constantly, over medium heat, until thickened and bubbly. Whisk in whipping cream and remaining ingredients.
