Gravy.  It is better than chocolate or ice cream or brownies.  There should be a national holiday for gravy.  If I had to choose between roast gravy and fried chicken gravy I would have a breakdown.

 

Gravy on white wonder bread.  I'm not a mashed potato fan.  Or just gravy on meat.  Or on the plate.  

 

I hardly ever have it, it is as scarce as a bologna on white bread with good mayo sandwich in our food repetoire, but real gravy. . . oh my it is the stuff of dreams. 


@Sooner Your post made me smile with the memory of gravy ruled by "calorie sins"!  Please come where I am, we have plenty to share and then some!Smiley Happy

My husband, no. Me, yes. I love gravy especially with mashed potatoes. When I make a roast chicken, turkey or roast beef, I always make gravy. Alsomeat cooked in the crockpot has gravy. Glad I don’t have to share.

Oh my, I love gravy.   Brown, Cream, Sausage gravy.   But we hardly ever have it because I don't cook things that render the fat needed to make it.  I did buy some Jimmy Dean sage sausage today.   I may make sausage gravy in the morning IF it gives off enough grease .

 

DH can take it or leave it.  I don't think his mother made much of it.

I grew up in the midwest and we had Gravy A LOT!  Now, I rarely have it and never make it at home.  I do get a half order of biscuits & gravy about every other week from a local coffee shop.  Other than that, I can't even remember tha last time I had any other type of gravy.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, but Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

@jeanlake Gosh!  You named so many things that DH loves!  I grew up in the same state as he.  He was in the center of the state, and I was in the mountains.   I ate quite a bit of vegetables like green beans,  tomatoes,  and creamed corn.  We had a "country cook" who used some salted pork. 

I Never saw "fat back" until I visited the woman in the next apartment. 

 


@ECBG , I thought salted pork and fat back were the same.  What's the diff?

@vabreeze Fat back is all fat plus the rind. Salted pork has some meat. It is also cured.

Re: Anything And GRAVY! An Insanity?

for the most part we can take it or leave it. DH and I both like an occasional biscuit & gravy meal in cold weather. So hearty & filling then.The thought of it in summer is rarely appealing.  My husband can usually take gravy or leave it.  I occasionally like a 'beef manhatten ' meal that a cafeteria in our area offers. 

 

I have never been a master gravy cook any way so this may be why we do not consume much. I have never found any canned ones at all worth it . Really good homemade gravy can be very tasty.

 

I find my felines (both girls) love it in the canned foods ! Some brands add and highlight extra gravy on the can . Smiley Happy

Yes, my husband and son love gravy and will put it over anything. At Thanksgiving I could just serve stuffing and gravy and they wouldn't ask where the turkey was.LOL

@vabreeze Sometimes fat back is also called "streaked meat".  Saltedpork is a slab of pork fat which has been salted.
