- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 2 teaspoons fresh cracked ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic salt
- 2 ½ cups milk
How to cook White Gravy
- To make the gravy-melt the butter in a medium sauce pan and then whisk in flour and pepper, and while continuously whisking stir in the salt and garlic salt.
- Slowly pour in the milk and turn heat to medium, whisk occasionally and it will thicken (about 5 minutes) then remove from heat and serve.
Other ways to serve white gravy is on top of chicken fried steak or grits, or even alongside rice with a dash of Tabasco.
