Roux to gravy

  1. In medium saucepan on medium heat, melt the butter, add in flour and whisk together. Cook for a couple minutes. Add in tablespoon of the sage, onion, garlic spice blend, and some fresh sage, and continue whisking.
  2. Slowly ladle in water while whisking together (prevent lumps) until all broth is added and thickened. Add a bay leaf.
  3. Bring back to simmering boil stirring often then lower heat to low setting and cook an additional 15 minutes stirring frequently to prevent burning.
  4. Taste and add a pinch more seasoning as needed and browning color seasoning (optional and add less to start with – mixing in before adding more, until desired color is achieved) .
  5. Add mushrooms to gravy and switch pot to low heat.
  6. Remove from heat and set aside.



  • For extra rich and glossy gravy whisk in an additional pad of butter towards the end.
  • Add potato water to gravy if it is getting too thick
  • Add 1 TBS of fresh thyme at the end.
  • The shredded mushrooms can be tossed with oil and seasonings and roasted until crispy brown then added to gravy for a deeper-richer flavor.
