    • Country Gravy Mix

      Make your own easy Country Gravy Mix to have on hand for quick, easy gravy in an instant.


      1 cup all-purpose flour
      2 teaspoons garlic salt
      1 teaspoon paprika
      1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
      1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
      1 Tbs. Chicken Bouillon granules
      1/2 tsp salt

      Combine all in a small bag or jar, mixing well. Seal and attach directions for use.

      To make Gravy:

      You'll Need:
      2 Tbs. Butter
      2 Tbs. Country Gravy Mix
      2 c. Milk

      Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add gravy mix stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball/pasty (about 1 full minute) add milk, whisking gently. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes, whisking occasionally to prevent it from sticking or burning.

      Serve over biscuits, mashed potatoes, chicken or anything else your heart desires!

        Has anyone tried incorporating dry milk into this mixture? Looks like you'd need to add 1/3 c dry milk for every T of the mix (before milk). Then you'd only need to worry about adding butter and water. For prep I'm thinking, you'd melt 2T butter in 1 c water. Add 2/3 c + 2 T mix to cold water. Mix till smooth. When butter/water is boiling, add cold water/mix all at once and whisk while cooking till thickened.

        I made a trial batch of this. I made up the basic mix, and then added 1/3 c dry milk for every 2 T of the mix. To make 1 c of gravy, I melted 2 T butter in 1/2 c boiling water. I added a heaping 1/3 c of the mix (with dry milk) to 1/2 c cold water. Whisk until there are no lumps. Then I added that to the boiling water, and whisked over medium heat until thick and smooth. The texture was good, but we didn't like the bullion in it. Won't add that again. Otherwise, it's a pretty good mix.
