- 1 tablespoon corn oil
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Dash black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon sodium-free powdered instant beef bouillon
- 3/4 cup plus 3/4 cup skim milk
Place oil in a skillet and heat over medium heat. In a jar or container with a lid, combine flour, salt, pepper, beef bouillon, and 3/4 cup milk; shake until well mixed. Carefully pour into the heated oil and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup milk. Cook, whisking constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Gravy will thicken further as it cools. Whisk in additional milk to thin as desired.
Serve over salmon patties or biscuits. For Southern-style sausage gravy, crumble 3 fully-cooked, heated turkey sausage patties (such as Butterball turkey sausage) into the gravy and serve over biscuits or toast.
Yield: 1 1/2 cups. Serving size: 1/4 cup.
