    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    From scratch.  It is very easy to make.

    Take a couple of tablespoons  of drippings from your chicken fried steak cook, and add a couple of tablespoons of flour in a hot skillet.  Stir together until a dark roux is formed.  Slowly add milk (I had some half and half and some skim milk) and stir over low heat until the gravy thickens somewhat.  Add salt and pepper.

    Scrape off those pieces stuck to the pan and stir them in also.

    • ½ cup chopped onions <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
    • 1½ cups chicken stock
    • 1 cup heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley  
    • 1 tablespoon of your favorite seasoning mix

    Pour out and discard all but 1 tablespoon of the oil from the skillet in which the steaks were cooked, leaving the residue of juices from the meat and any brown crust remaining on the bottom. Heat over high heat, and when the oil sizzles, add the onions and cook until light golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining 3 tablespoons of flour and gradually add the stock, whisking constantly. Add the remaining seasoning mix and continue whisking until the gravy comes to a boil, about 2 minutes. Add the cream and parsley and cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Serve immediately.

    @billyray I'm sure that's excellent gravy, but it's not the traditional cream gravy served in every honky tonk and cafe in Texas for chicken fried steak.  The only seasoning in the gravy, besides salt and pepper,  would have come from the drippings and scraped pieces from the CFS cook.  Spices might include Mexican oregano, cumin, paprika, and definitely a little cayenne.

    You're right VI, It's more of a New Orleans style. Really rich, so we only have it once or twice a year, otherwise I'd weigh 300 lbs. :))
