I use instant mashed potato flakes. Whisk a little at a time. Works great.

Love the roux tip. This is always how I prepare my gravy, and it hasn't let me down yet.

I too use the cornstarch/water slurry to thicken my gravies, but it's nice to know another way if you don't happen to have any in your pantry.

Nice option! I have used the cornstarch/water method to even Wondra flour, which does not have to mixed w/ anything beforehand, just sprinkle some in until it's the thickness that you like.
