Southern Style White Gravy with Mushrooms

Guest Post: Southern Style White Gravy with Mushrooms

We have a guest in our kitchen today!  Carole of The Yum Yum Factor, is sharing her delicious gravy recipe that you’ll want to try on almost everything!

I love Southern style biscuits and gravy and when we travel to the Southern US, I order it all the time. I don’t make it at home because it’s very fatty with all of that sausage and nobody else in my house likes biscuits. Too many vegetarian versions include vegetarian “sausage” and I wanted to avoid that as well so I started to experiment with finely chopped mushrooms in its place. Adding a bit of miso really ups the umami and makes sausage totally unnecessary and, in fact, I prefer it.

I love this on poached or scrambled eggs on toasted English muffins or toast instead of biscuits. It’s also delicious on scrambled eggs, pork chops, pork tenderloin, roasted chicken etc. So, basically, everything.

When reheating, you will probably have to add a little broth or water as it thickens up in the fridge.

Guest Post: Ham, Cheddar and Mushroom Muffins by The Brunette Baker

We have a guest in the kitchen! Jenny of The Brunette Baker is back with another family friendly meal that packs the nutrients in. These on-the-go bites will be a life-saver on those busy nights. 

Mealtime with kids can be a stressful feat. My daughter has loved most vegetables foods since her first bite of proper food – broccoli and spinach being amongst her favourites. She is honestly every parent’s dream at the dinner table. My son, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. His little body runs purely on sugar, carbs, more sugar, and the occasional carrot. Apparently (caramel) apples don’t fall far from the tree.
