Very soft bread dipped in gravy? (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sop

Here is my best explanation:

'bread dipped in gravy?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'very soft' is the wordplay.
'very' becomes 'so' (I've seen this in other clues).
'soft' becomes 'p' (musical abbreviation for 'piano').
'so'+'p'='SOP'
