I made a simple gravy where you take your meat and cook it up. I then add either butter or a little olive oil and let it melt. I then sprinkle in a little flour and let it cook the flour up. I repeat that until you can no longer add anymore flour. Then little by little I add some milk and mix. I do this until I get the thickness of the gravy I want. Pretty simple recipe that I use with any gravy with meat or not. To add a little flavor you can add any herbs or seasonings you want.
Side note: My mother made this gravy but put it on top of toast. It was our favorite because it was called "Shit on a shingle". This was a cheap and frugal dinner that we ate a lot. I still love it.
