Easy homemade turkey gravy is a thanksgiving classic.
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2 cups liquid: drippings from turkey, homemade turkey stock or chicken stock **
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter until it starts bubbling.
  2. Add flour and stir until it looks like coarse sand. Cook for 1-2 minutes stirring frequently.
  3. With a whisk in hand pour all the liquid in while whisking vigorously until thoroughly combined (about 20 seconds).
  4. Cook until thickened to desired thickness, stirring regularly paying attention to scraping the bottom to prevent burning. Gravy will continue to thicken some as it cools. Thin with additional stock while whisking vigorously if it becomes too thick.
  5. Season to taste.
**If your turkey was brined the drippings may be very salty. Plan on doubling this recipe to dilute with unsalted stock or use less of the drippings overall.
