Sausage Gravy

If, say for example, you’re making sausage gravy and you find out—only after you start cooking—that your roommate has used up all the flour, cornstarch makes an acceptable substitute. Don’t put the cornstarch directly into the pan; mix it with the cold milk, then add the milk mixture to the pan.
