Lumpy Gravy

Sometimes dinner that doesn't look very good, really hits the spot. This completely colorless meal was so full of flavor and so easy to make, I didn't care that it looked like crap (literally!!!)

I am working on a cutlet recipe that tastes like a combination of chicken fried and salisbury steak. I'm pretty sure I have the flavor down, so I just gotta remake it again, to double check the measurements, then I'll share, I promise.

Pictured above is the cutlet, smothered in lumpy brown gravy with a side of mashed potatoes. This meal almost reminds me of a TV dinner.

*Bonus points if you know who had an album titled "Lumpy Gravy" without clicking on the link!

Oooh that looks so good. Sometimes the tastiest food is he least pretty to look at!
I originally thought Lumpy Gravy was Captain Beefheart but then my boyfriend put me straight.

courtney...nothing too fancy...just earth balance (about 2 or 3 tablespoons) melted in a hot frying pan, Then I added about 1/4 cup of AP flour, and whisked it into a paste then added a little more than a cup of water mixed with "Better tha bouillon" "beef" flavor, and continued to whisk until nice and thick. I got a bit disracted by jeopardy, hence the lumps!
