Dazzle your Thanksgiving guests with turkey gravy alongside your golden turkey and mashed potatoes!
- 2 1/2 cups of turkey pan drippings or stock
- 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup of flour
- Strain turkey pan drippings.
- Then melt butter in a small pot on the stove.
- Next, add flour to make a roux. Cook the roux for about a minute or two, until it starts to smell like browned butter.
- Then slowly pour in your turkey drippings. If you don’t have enough, you can use chicken stock.
A few notes to remember:
- Keep in mind that thick gravy can be fixed and thinned out, but it’s harder to thicken a watery gravy, so if you add more liquid after the flour do it slowly!
- The gravy will thicken a bit after it rests for a few minutes.
- As long as your turkey is seasoned well you shouldn’t have to add seasoning to your gravy, but taste just to check!
I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!
