Gravy Boats That Stand the Test (and Taste) of Time

There are too many Southern meals to not have a designated gravy boat for. Living in the south and not owning a gravy boat is like a broke college student not having their go-to baking pan for frozen pizza! From biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, and mashed potatoes; gravy is the perfect sauce for a lot of meals.

Who said gravy boats needed to be fancy? While there are a few decadent options we love, like the below stoneware gravy boat, you don't need a Kate Spade New York gravy boat to feel like home. In fact, a simple porcelain gravy boat is enough to make every holiday dish taste better with a side of gravy. Get yourself a new gravy boat that will put all of your serveware to shame. As long as gravy is an accepted sauce for the meal you're eating, a sauce boat should have its spot on your dining table next to your salt and pepper shakers.

Royal Albert Old Country Roses Gravy Boat

The flowers bring me back to hanging out in my Grandma's kitchen. Roses on cookware and dishware are a staple theme in a Southerner's kitchen. Honestly, this one is so pretty that I would leave it out in the dining room as tabletop decor.

Now, all of these gravy boats are lovely, but if I see gravy in a country-themed boat, I'm betting it's one of the best recipes I'll ever have. Pour some delicious gravy from the spout, or get a matching ladle for serving.
