ProTips

  • As you proceed, taste! Gravy is the sauce that binds the meat, potatoes, and vegetables together in your turkey feast. Before placing the gravy boat on the table, ensure that you thoroughly season it. If you brine your turkey and utilize the brined turkey pan juices, leave off the salt until you taste the gravy.
  • Stir the gravy using a medium-sized wire whisk, forcefully mixing in the flour into the pan drippings to make a roux (a thickening combination of equal parts fat and flour), then stir in the liquid.
  • Do you have a few lumps? Now I don't care about lumps if those lumps are pieces of turkey or lumps of flour. So if you are looking for smooth gravy, pour it through a wire-mesh sieve.
  • While a delicious broth is a popular liquid for many gravies, you may experiment with wine, milk, or half-and-half.

Prep: 5 min; Total: 20 min; Servings: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C. turkey drippings (fat and juices from roasted turkey)
  • 1/2 C. All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 C. liquid (juices from roasted turkey, broth)
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or less if using turkey drippings from a brined turkey
  • 1 tsp. pepper

Directions:

  1. Using the drippings from the turkey roasting pan, pour them into a bowl. Leave the brown pieces in the pan. Return 1/2 cup of drippings to your roasting pan. Then stir in 1/2 cup of flour. Forcefully mixing in the flour into the pan drippings to make a roux. Remember to accurately measure; too little fat makes gravy lumpy; too little flour and your gravy will be greasy.
  2. Set your stovetop to medium heat, whisking continuously until the gravy becomes smooth and bubbly. Then stir in your 4 cups of broth. Bring your heat to medium and allow your gravy to boil for 2–3 minutes. Make sure you continue to whisk. Taste and season as needed.
