Everyone has that one meal they remember eating as a kid. You know, that one dinner that your mom makes better then any other mom. Well, for our family it was our mom’s rice and gravy. It was always a good night at our house when this was on the menu for dinner. We decided to re-create this recipe to make it as guiltless as possible. After eating almost three servings last night, we think it is safe to say we were successful at creating delicious guiltless gravy. It was such a simple and quick recipe. We served over brown rice and had a fresh, crisp green salad on the side. It was such a great, satisfying dinner. Although nothing will every come close to our mom’s rice and gravy, this remix may be a close second. Hope you enjoy!
