Easy Mushroom Gravy Recipe
Here’s a true confession, we’re gravy addicts. Seriously we can’t get enough of mushroom gravy. Our delicious recipe is super easy and that’s quite dangerous. Why? Because it’s so easy to make and super delicious, it’s hard to not want to eat it everyday. We put this stuff on everything. Literally almost everything except for vanilla ice cream. Mashed potatoes (duh), meats, veggies, dipping with bread, you name it, we’ll put it on our savory foods anytime of day. In fact, one of our kitchen team members ate this gravy for breakfast two days in a row just to finish all the recipe testing leftovers! Now that’s total obsession and dedication.
