I know this is a little late, but what is everyone's favourite gravy recipe, for something such as Christmas dinner?

A favourite gravy base over which I have many variations is fried onion, mustard, yeast extract, and miso

Some red wine and cranberry jelly really peps up standard gravy

I ended up going with pretty much this http://vegetarian.about.com/od/saucesdi ... ggravy.htm

Although I used crushed garlic, instead of garlic salt, and a lot more stock. I also used a stick blender to make it smooth.

I <3 Bisto. I fry chunky chopped onions in a tiny bit of oil, then stir them into Bisto onion gravy. CHEATING I KNOW. But it's the best thing with bangers & mash.

Same here! I made a roast at the weekend, and I did onions + Bisto + red wine in a small pan and reduced it down a bit. Tasted good. I usually forget about the gravy until it's too late and then I just have it as it is, which I also really like provided I don't make it too watery.

I'm MEGA adverse to really watery gravy, my friend makes the most amazing Bisto based gravy, I'm not sure what she adds to it but it is amazing, really thick and tasty.

I wonder if your friend added an extra spoonful or two :) I usually put 4 VERY heaped in mine and a little under 1/2 pint for 2 of us. I like it to sort of jump out of the jug onto my plate rather than pour :D
