Creamy, pepper-seasoned gravy is a staple in southern comfort foods like biscuits and gravy and chicken fried steak. This diabetes-friendly version uses a vegetable oil-based margarine to reduce the saturated fat that's usually found in traditional gravy. Serve this with Air Fryer Buttermilk Chicken and Southern Collard Greens for the ultimate southern comfort meal!
