What you need:

1 stick of real butter. Margarine or that canola oil crap won't cut it. You need real fats.
3/4 cup flour
5-6 cups of whole milk. Whole is better because of the fat content
2 tsp salt
6 tbsp ground pepper (more or less as you prefer)

First, melt the butter in a small pot. Once the butter is liquid, combine the flour making a mixture known as Roux. Add the milk and whisk until the Roux is dissolved. Add the salt and pepper and place on a medium high heat and whisk until the mixture thickens to your liking. Amazing when mixed with ground beef and slopped over a couple slices of sourdough bread.

The fastest way to a man's heart is through his 4th and 5th rib respectively. The second is through his arteries. And this recipe has plenty of fat and cholesterol (flavor).

Sounds great. I think this is the base used in making sausage gravy, which will get the goodness of grease to a man's heart even faster. I presume you made a white or blond roux?

Yup. Blonde roux. I also use it to thicken up Alfredo Sauce too and gives it an unmistakable butter flavor that just can't be bought at the store.

Whole milk and a whole stick of butter dramallama No wonder it's award winning. Some bacon or sausage would do nicely in this gravy.
