Easy Turkey Gravy Recipe

easy turkey gravy recipe

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!
