First of all I had high hopes for this dish. My Mom made a similar kind of gravy once a long time ago, but now after making this gravy, I think hers was made of Cream of Mushroom Soup and not from scratch. I am a firm believer that you can make the best food from scratch. That being said I really had to "doctor" this recipe up quite a bit and it is still pretty tasteless. I made it all like the directions said and found it to be so bland that I had to add a little "Country Gravy" packet with some extra milk to add some depth. I also added a Bay Leaf, Garlic Powder, Worchestershire Sauce, Seasoned Salt and Dried Parsley, along with the recipe's Dried Sage. I am really disappointed that even though I added all this, it's still pretty thick and inedible. This gravy was so thick I started to add water so it wouldn't end up tasting & being like glue. But the problem is that when you add water the flavor gets watered down too. So I am really stumped and dissapointed in this recipe to say the least. I am unfortunately going to give this 3 stars. I was hoping to give it more if I could've just been able to fix it up somewhat :(
