Don't buy those packets. Make your own Homemade Gravy mix with this simple recipe. So much better than store bought!

I am always looking for ways to cut corners while feeding my family a little healthier in the process.  This time of year if their are mashed potatoes on a plate, my hubby wants to know, “Is there gravy?” I will admit that I am not much of a gravy person.  However I am surrounded by gravy loving people. I have bought the gravy packets many times.  I blame the fact that I didn’t really care for it, so I didn’t want to make it.

Then I stood here in my kitchen and read the back of a gravy packet. ~sigh~ Have you ever read the back of one of those seasoning packets? The ingredients aren’t exactly something you know how to pronounce. If I can’t pronounce it, chances are I don’t want to eat it.  I knew that I could find a simple solution. Here is my gravy shortcut.

Of course it wouldn’t be my house if there wasn’t also a gluten free version.

This gravy turned out even better than I imagined! It has the perfect amount of flavor! I got 2 thumbs up from everyone!

  1. This certainly looks like perfect gravy! I’ll have to give this a try, as I never buy those packets, but sometimes homemade gravy is tricky.

    Thanks to I Heart Publix for the link to this recipe 🙂

  2. Does the gluten free version just make one serving/batch? If I made a double or triple recipe, how much would I use to make one batch?
