Cream Gravy

Yield Makes 3/4 cup
Serve with vegetables, pasta, or chicken. If you have drippings from fried chicken or other meat, you can substitute those for the butter.

Ingredients

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
