Big, big fan. Obviously essential on a roast, great on chips (especially with cheese), brilliant on and in a pie, just a glorious substance all round. I will concede this time that some homemade fancy stuff is very very nice, but granules or whatever are also fine (we just add a Knorr stock thing as well for extra salt). It’s time we talked about gravy.
At some point someone will say “gravy’s good tonight!” or similar and we’ll all laugh
Same as I say for milk with cereal - an unnecessary addition which has somehow become a staple. At least with gravy it has flavour and doesnt turn the eating into a race against time to gobble the food before it becomes soggy and gross
Just don’t get chips and gravy. Oh I’ve made this nice crispy thing all soggy now.
It’s good though, obviously. Back in my student stoner days me and my flatmate would on occasion dip stuffing balls in bisto in front of the television as a little snack, or a tray of cheapo Yorkshire puds.
With Yorkshire puds I like to pour my gravy on them immediately before eating because of the aforementioned soggy chip factor. Like them to still have some bite instead of become paste like.
