Recipe type: Dressing
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8-10 servings
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 32 oz stock (chicken or turkey)
  1. In a saucepan over medium to medium-low heat, add the stick of butter until melted then add the onion powder and whisk that in.
  2. Add flour, a few tablespoons at a time, to the butter and whisk to form a roux or paste-like consistency.
  3. Add about ¼ cup of stock, then a bit more flour and continue whisking to keep the roux. Next you will add the remainder of the stock and bring to a slow boil, whisking frequently.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue to boil for another 10 minutes or so until the gravy has thickened.
*If the gravy becomes too thick, you may whisk in a bit of water or more stock to thin it out.
*If you make this ahead of time and let it sit or refrigerate, it will thicken a lot, as gravy does. Have extra broth (or drippings if you did happen to have some of that on hand) to thin the gravy back out when reheating.
