I always hated saving grease when I make foods. In fact I try to tend to eat foods without much grease now, but when I make gravy I would like to have a bit of flavor. So how do you add flavor to your gravy? Usually I buy the premixed stuff where you just add water...but I would like to make it at home. The one I fell in love with recently was peppered gravy. It was creamy and very smooth tasting. How about you?
