The Best Gravy Recipes:
1. Sausage Gravy
A derivative of country gravy, sausage gravy is the ultimate Southern breakfast comfort food!
Pile this amazingly flavorful gravy over buttermilk biscuits for the best breakfast you will ever eat!
2. Turkey Gravy
One of the most iconic items on our list of gravy recipes is perhaps the most famous of all gravies: turkey gravy!
It’s the most important part of Thanksgiving dinner for a good reason. It goes on everything and ties the whole meal together!
3. White Country Gravy
Unlike most gravies, white country gravy has a base of milk, rather than meat drippings or broth. It is essentially American béchamel sauce.
Popular in the South, it’s great with biscuits, fried chicken, and is a must with country fried steak.
4. Beef Broth Brown Gravy
This beef broth gravy has a deep, savory flavor and is super quick and easy to make.
With just five ingredients and ten minutes, you can have this ready to slather over meats, potatoes and more.
5. Red Eye Gravy
Red eye gravy is an amazingly tasty Southern dish, flavored (and colored) by country ham drippings.
It pairs up wonderfully with freshly baked biscuits or grits.
6. Mushroom Gravy
Out of all veggies, mushrooms are the one that just go amazing in gravy.
This recipe features a homemade brown gravy loaded with mushrooms. Your mashed potatoes are just begging for this one!
7. Giblet Gravy
Giblets are a little controversial. Some insist on putting them in gravy, and some insist they should be discarded!
If you’re in the former camp, this recipe is a must!
8. Tomato Gravy
Tomato gravy is popular in certain areas of the South, especially Louisiana and Appalachia.
Though the recipes vary from region to region, the basic idea remains the same. This recipe is a basic tomato gravy, using bacon grease as the fat.
9. Hamburger Gravy
In the Midwest, hamburger gravy reigns. It’s a milk based gravy, and can be considered a cousin to sausage gravy.
Pile it on mashed potatoes, rice or egg noodles for a hearty meal.
10. Chocolate Gravy
We’re wrapping up our list of gravy recipes with something sweet: chocolate gravy.
Although it may look like a basic chocolate sauce, it’s a true gravy with a roux and milk base. Try it over fresh biscuits for a real treat!
