Super Easy Mushroom Gravy tastes delicious 
Gravy does create a lot of stress when it comes to meal making. Everyone has a story about the lumpy-flour laden gravy they were either served or made themselves. But honestly, making gravy, and especially this Super Easy Mushroom Gravy is easier than you think. 

Make sure you are using a saute pan with a large available surface area and a good whisk. Do not attempt to make gravy in a nonstick pan as you won't be able to vigorously whisk the flour without scratching your pan.
