So as you may know, I am Southern by heritage. I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. Gravy is part of my upbringing. And my California born husband loves gravy too, so I think gravy itself is non-discriminatory. So how to have a healthier alternative? Mushrooms. This recipe is always a “go-to” for special dinners– Thanksgiving, Christmas and any special event because it is savory and can be enjoyed by all types of eaters!
