Easy Recipe: Homemade Garlic Gravy (Sabroso Saturday)

Photo Credit: rebouche.blogspot.com

Gravy is something I always bought. I never thought it was so easy until I saw Rachael Ray make it on one of her shows.  Ever since then I have never bought gravy again.  It’s easy, simple and my whole family loves it.  I make extra all the time.

Thanksgiving is around the corner so this recipe is perfect. You can also modify the flavors to your liking.

Tools Needed

Measuring spoon (tablespoon)
Pot or pan (you’re not afraid to scratch – I use a stainless steel pan)


Butter (2-tbsp)
Flour (2-tbsp)
Chicken Stock (approx. 2-1.2 cups)
A head of Garlic
Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 425°.

First you get a whole head of garlic, cut the tip off the head of garlic, exposing the very top of the cloves. Drizzle the top of the garlic head with extra-virgin olive oil, wrap it tightly in tin foil. (Note: If you don’t like garlic, you can omit this first step.)

Place the garlic head in the oven and let it roast for approximately 45 minutes. When the garlic is finished and cool enough to handle, squeeze the cloves out of their skins and into a small bowl. Mash it with a fork.

Set aside.

Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the flour into the butter and stir the mixture (this is called a Roux), allowing the flour to cook slightly, about 1 minute.

Whisk in the chicken stock, allowing it to simmer and thicken, about 3-5 minutes. Add the roasted garlic mash to the gravy, stirring to incorporate and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  2. I always ask for gravy when possible. The idea of roasting garlic and then adding it to the gravy is awesome! I’m imagining this on a baked potato instead of working on mashed potatoes.

  3. This would be a great gravy for Thanksgiving side over turkey and it would compliment mashed potatoes nicely too! I will be trying it. Thanks!

  4. I love gravy. I’m always picky about the consistency though I bet this recipe turned out perfect though. My mom who never cooks can make gravy, so I should try this one.

  5. I never use jarred or powdered gravy anymore either. But I always make my gravy with the pan dripping sof whatever I cook. I need to make this when I am having something like chicken breasts. I think once you make your own gravy, it is hard to go back. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. Thank you for this one!!! I’ll do it on Thanksgiving day!!Love it!

  9. This recipe for gravy is def something I can do. I can even trade the chicken stock fo some of the drippings from the turkey or do like half and half. Man, there is nothing like a gravy that compliments every dish on the table!

    Great recipe to keep handy for the holidays! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I love RR’s show. She always says she’s not very good at baking, well I confess I’m lousy at making gravy and resorted to the store bought kind too. This recipe sounds like one I can tackle and hubby love garlic, so I’m going to give it a trial run before the big day (Thanksgiving). Thanks a bunch, Lisa!
