Old Fashion Turkey Gravy From Scratch.

This foolproof gravy is super simple with Devine flavor. This gravy is made from pan juices (Turkey Drippings) and goes great with Roasted Turkey and Loaded Mashed Potatoes.  This year I had a hard time choosing if I wanted to dip my turkey in gravy, or use homemade Cranberry sauce over my turkey.  They both won, and I did both, it's THAT good!

1. 4 TBSP Oil

2. 4 TBSP Flour

3. 3 Cups Reserved Turkey drippings

4. 1/2 tsp Salt

5. 1/2 tsp Pepper


1.On the stove top, to a Medium Sauce Pan, add oil, flour, make a paste. Stir paste until a light golden brown (or if you want darker gravy, stir until desired color.)

2. Add Reserved Turkey Broth and continue to stir until desired thickness.

3.  Add salt and pepper, stir and serve over Mashed Potatoes, or Turkey 



To Baste or not to baste Turkey?

Basting the turkey is up to you, some say do, others say don't. I do,  except in the middle of the night. Let's face it, I'm not getting up all overs of the night to soak my turkey in broth without even a thank you. (lol) It's just not necessary. It's going to be fantastic either way.. but make sure to save the broth for incredible Turkey Gravy!
