Re: what are the best an easiest

When I make gravy, I try to use any bits that are left over from whatever meat I'm cooking, but not always. Add a few tbs of butter or oil to pan, I like to s&p the butter, then add about same amount of flour and stir til it starts to get a little color. Add chicken/beef/veg stock depending on what you are making, add about 2 cups maybe, then add as needed to thin out. I always add some milk to mine (we drink 1%) to give a little richness to it. I always make a huge pot of gravy, we are gravy people, so I end up using about a 1/4 of butter and flour. You can always add brown rice baby cereal to thicken it or a little cornstarch if you thin it out too much.
ETA: You can use this when you are making anything that needs a soup because the soup is basically a gravy. You can add any type of seasoning to it as well and it tastes great. I've used it with shepard's pie and chicken pot pie before.
I lift my eyes unto the hills, Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of Heaven and Earth. And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands, For You are who You are no matter where I am, And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand, You never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm
