    now these are the type of debates I like...
    Answer: well that is quite a difficult question, I mean it depends on who makes the gravy .i.e is it "ahhhh bisto" or Asda/tesco cheap and cheerful??; It also depends on what cow the chesse came from.. or better still whose feet the cheese came from

    of course, its not neccessarily even from a cow, it could be goat, pig, horse, dog, whatever really.

    might i remind you all that Bisto, granules, other powders are not gravy. it is a poor substitute. Gravy is made from the juices at the bottom of the roasting tray which are reduced, thickened with flour to make a roux, then cooked and thinned with stock, wine, vegetable cooking water or just water, then seasoned. Not spooned out of a tin into a jug, mixed with water and stirred.
    So much better than bisto. urrrgh

    depends on the quality of course...

    bad cheese and bad gravy are awful

    but seeing as though I had a orgasmic sunday lunch yesterday, gravy gets my nod.

    i dont believe that more people have answered gravy......

    gravy is merely a condement of sorts (i know it isnt actually a condement, but it is similar) and can only be used for pouring

    cheese on the other hand is amazing.

    its versatile, i.e. it can be used in sandwiches, on crackers, in sauces, on things, in things.

    im pretty crap at verbalising things like this, but cheese is much better

    you eat jacket potatos with cheese don't you? and crepes are quite often served with cheese, and as crepes pretty much = pancakes which are made from the same mixture as yorkshire puddings, i think a yorkshire pudding with cheese would be tasty

    But, still gotta go gravy

    although - I must admit I just had the nicest sandwich in THE WORLD which was a croque monsieur from the purveyors of the finest sandwiches in Oxford, Riccardos...so thats making me consider changing my mind!

    i dont believe this is happening!

    if you had asked me what the oputcome of this thread would be, i would have said cheese would have been overwhelmingly popular.

    cheese is much more useful, if you buy some cheese you could have cheese on toast for breakfast, cheese sandwiches for lunch, and pasta with cheese, or macaroni cheese for dinner.

    you can pour gravy onto meat and veg, whoop dee do
