Create your own simple make ahead Chicken or Turkey Gravy mix to have on hand for fast, lump free, delicious gravy in under 3 minutes.

Gravy mix range in price from .79¢- $1.99 at the store, depending on the brand you choose, but almost all of them contain freaky ingredients including Corn Syrup Solids, Disodium inosinate, guanylate, and Hydrolyzed soy. Quite frankly, I don’t want any of those things in my body.

I do, however, like the convenience of having gravy mixes on hand, particularly during the busy workweek when we’re struggling to get a decent meal on the table after a long stressful day at work. So, we simply created our own homemade gravy convenience mix. The addition of poultry seasoning to the mix gives it a burst of herbs and seasonings that enhance the dish.

  1. great idea, if you don’t have powdered milk, non-dairy creamer will work in a pinch. i think i will cook up a nice chicken dinner for sunday. now i won’t have to worry about the rest of the week.:party1:

  2. i am new at this suite but i am really having fun with this. i can make the seasoning my self and the sauces so much cheaper and better for you if you don’t like a lot of salt in the food now days. lot of the stuff i have already just have to mix and i am ready :smile1:

  3. Yes , I’m going to make this gravy mix. I’m also going to see if I can get a BEEF gravy mix to work using this base. Wish me luck.

  4. I might be old school and this is probably a dumb question but here goes. Wouldn’t adding liquid to hot melted butter be like adding liquid to hot grease, a painful and potentially dangerous fire starting hazard? Wouldn’t it be better to add the powder mix to the melted butter, stir to mix well and then add the cold water?
