for the Roux

  • 3/4 cup or 1 1/2 sicks butter
  • 3 tablespoons All-purpose flour (Approx equal amount to butter)

for the Gravy

  • 48 oz chicken broth
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • sage to taste
  • 3-4 eggs hard boiled and sliced
  • 1 handful giblets boiled and chopped.


for the Roux

  • Over low heat, melt butter in a large skillet - whisk in several heaping tablespoons of flour while continuously stirring. It may clump up and then will start melting into semi-liquid.  Saturate with flour and keep whisking. Roux will darken as the flour cooks continue process till roux transforms to a dark gold/medium brown color. Next, remove from heat and reserve for gravy (See cooking video at beginning of this post.)
