With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I felt as though a Keto friendly gravy recipe would be appropriate. Serve this over your mashed cauliflower and you’re set! Even your mashed potato eating family will love this gravy!

I whip this up one of my favorite kitchen shortcuts — Better than Bouillon bases. They’re much more flavorful than traditional bouillon and they instantly add a deep, slow cooked flavor to my keto recipes. I refer to it as a flavor bomb and best of all, it’s fairly low in carbs too.

Creamy Keto Gravy Reciple - Low Carb & 4 Ingredients

Better Than Bouillon Nutrition Information & Ingredients

Better Than Bouillon offers a variety of flavors including: roast beef, chicken, ham and even garlic. Choose something that will compliment your meal (I always have the beef and roasted chicken on hand!).

The ingredients for the roasted chicken base include: Chicken Meat Including Natural Chicken Juices, Salt, Sugar, Corn Syrup Solids, Chicken Fat, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Dried Whey (Milk), Flavoring, Disodium Inosinate and Guanylate, Turmeric.

These ingredients are not perfect by any means, and homemade will always be best. But it’s much better than most other store-bought brands.

The flavor is quintessential of comfort food. It’s deep and it’s real. Like you’ve been simmering a pot of delicious stew all day! You cant go wrong with this delicious low carb addition!

Keto Gravy Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • No cream cheese on hand? You could just as easily make a low carb gravy with heavy cream or a pinch of xanthan gum.
  • This is excellent served with my Sausage Stuffing Balls as a side dish.
  • Adjust the gravy to your tastes. Some like it saltier than others.
  • Take note that a full serving is 1/4 cup — it’s quite generous!
  • Instead of butter, you can substitute bacon fat for a deep, smokey flavor.

      I always have the beef, chicken and veggie versions in my fridge, but I tend to go for beef for my gravy.
