What is Gravy?

Gravy is made from leftover juices from the meat you cook. After you have cooked your holiday turkey or ham, the leftover juices can be mixed with other ingredients to make a gravy.

The gravy is thickened with a flour or cornstarch slurry to be able to pour over your meats and vegetables. Some people can’t eat their meal without this added dish.

Can you Freeze Gravy?

The simple answer is yes, gravy can be frozen. When you find yourself with leftover gravy, don’t throw it out, use these tips to use for a different meal.

We do not make gravy often. It is staple recipe when I make certain foods but it is mainly served during the holidays. Leftover turkey drippings mixed with stock, fat and flour combined makes the most magical side.

That is why we love to freeze it so we can enjoy this amazing flavor gravy throughout the year.

Can you Freeze White Gravy?

Freezing white gravy can be a little tricky, but you can freeze it. Store the white gravy as indicated above.

When you are ready to thaw the white gravy, it will separate. As you are reheating the defrost gravy will combine back together. We recommend continually whisking the thawed gravy together until the gravy is creamy again.

Sausage gravy will freeze similar to how the white gravy freezes. Simple store after the gravy has cooled in a freeze safe container.

When you are ready to serve cream or milk based gravy, make sure to whisk to reheat the gravy in a sauce pan until the gravy is creamy again.
