      Easy to make and tastes great. Used margarine instead of butter since I wanted to make it non-dairy. It is very good on meatloaf and I just have to try it with toast and poached egg as Miss Annie mentioned in her review, sounds scrumptious! Found that half a teaspoon salt and about seven turns on the pepper mill was just right for spices. Thanks for posting.

      I love this gravy. When I make this Southern dish, I usually use it on meatloaf. Leftovers are used for breakfast. Toast, poached egg, and Tomato Gravy. Now that is some serious good stuff. I made this as you wrote it, and it's so similar to mine. Sometimes, if I have it on hand, I use bacon drippings instead of the butter to give it another layer of taste. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
