Expert Tips

If “gravy” becomes too thick, stir in a little more milk or water.

If “gravy” has lumps, either pour into a blender and blend until smooth, or pour through a strainer to remove the lumps.

If “gravy” is too thin, mix a small amount of additional flour with a little bit of hot water—stir into mixture while cooking over medium-low heat.
