  • Add in the milk, salt, and black pepper. Whisk together and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure it doesn't burn and stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • If the gravy become too thick, add a splash of milk and whisk it together to thin it out to your liking. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
