While wandering about in the grocery store yesterday I came across a huge bin of gravy mix packets, ten for a dollar. Seemed plenty cheap so I grabbed a half dozen in three flavors. I’ve been generally dismissive of this sort of thing since gravy is easy but sometimes faster and easier trumps.
A gravy trial would be a sham without testimony from the biscuits. I quickly came across this recipe with a quick Google search. The recipe worked nicely:
The packet claims to be peppered and there were some black specks evident but there weren’t enough to keep me from grinding more.
The verdict? This stuff will do in a pinch. It’s fast, easy, and doesn’t require either grease or milk. Mix the contents with 1/2 cup of cool water, then whisk that into 1-1/2 cups of boiling water.
