Making smooth, lump-less gravy at home may seem like a tough hill to climb; like somehow achieving a smooth gravy is like hiking Mt. Everest. I’m here to tell you- move beyond your fear- you can accomplish anything! I will help you!
How to Make Gravy with No Lumps
You’ll start by combining equal amounts of melted butter and all-purpose flour by whisking them together in a large frying pan. It will lump up- DONT panic, this is normal.
Whisk the lumpy mixture together (stir the lumps around) for 2-3 minutes to COOK the raw flour and help release the starch from the flour. The starch is what thickens the gravy!
When the flour has been cooked, pour a little of the milk into the pan (maybe about 3-4 tablespoons) and quickly/vigorously whisk it into the buttery clumps. It should dissolve them and turn the contents of the pan into a thick paste.
Whisk in about half the remaining milk, and when it’s thoroughly combined, whisk in the remaining milk, seasoned salt, white and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. It should thicken up about this time.
Turn the heat off and transfer your Homemade White Country Gravy to a gravy boat or other serving container.
