Easy Gravy Recipe: From Scratch, No Drippings

This Easy Gravy Recipe is made from scratch and requires no pan drippings!  Using simple pantry ingredients, this delicious and rich gravy is ready in minutes.


  • 210.5 oz cans of consomme
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • fresh ground pepper (to taste, but I like to add 1/8 tsp)


  • In a skillet or saucepan add the consomme and simmer over low to medium heat for a few minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the butter and flour (I use a fork to mash it together).
  • Add the butter/flour mixture to the consomme and whisk until the gravy is bubbling and thickened.
  • Once the mixture has thickened, whisk in the cream and simmer until thickened once again.
  • Serve immediately.
