    Chef’s Tips

    • The flour and butter could quickly burn. Be aware of the temperature. I suggest starting at medium-low heat and gradually moving up to medium-medium heat based on your stove’s heat.
    • Feel free to flavor the dish however you’d like! I think the drippings from Ham are so flavorful that I don’t need to add spice or salt. In the last step, make sure to taste your gravy and then adjust the seasonings to your liking.
    • Do not leave! The entire recipe only takes five minutes, and the gravy from Ham will thicken up very quickly. Keep whisking the dressing on without ceasing until the sauce is thick. Add a small amount of milk to get your desired consistency if it becomes too thick.
