How to Make Mushroom Gravy

Making mushroom gravy from scratch is not as challenging as you might think. Sage gives this gravy a more traditional Thanksgiving flavor, but to change it up, try some chopped rosemary, tarragon, thyme, or parsley. This is slightly thinner than some gravies because we found the consistency to be more pleasing to the palate. Add 1 tablespoon flour to the slurry for a thicker gravy. You can substitute fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth for the Roasted Chicken Stock—but if you do, decrease the salt to 1/8 teaspoon or add none at all.
