Yep, we didn't call it white gravy either, just plain gravy as
opposed to red eye or beef gravy.
It has been a long time but I used to work a bit down river from you
and would sometimes go a fantastic little place called Kate's Kitchen
just outside Flat Rock on west Huron River Drive. Didn't look like
much but had great sausage gravy and pies.

If I were you I'd leave the Campbell's and Bisquick on the shelf and
take a drive down to scenic Flat Rock.
