Recipe by Tina S.
I am not very skilled in the gravy department, so when I saw this in the local paper I thought it's worth a try. Well it will be how I make my turkey gravy from now on. Its very simple and quite tasty, and I can say I made it myself. It has a nice color and best of all NO LUMPS!

This is THE recipe for gravy. Hands down. I made this the night before our Thanksgiving meal, added some thyme and when everyone tasted it, they all said "this is the base of the gravy?!" Soooo good..when I added the turkey drippings...well...I almost drank it all myself. Thank you for making gravy so easy and so drinkably, ridiculously good.
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 4 cups chicken broth or 4 cups turkey broth
- salt and pepper
- pan drippings from turkey
Directions See How It's Made
- In a medium saucepan, melt butter and whisk in flour.
- Cook over medium-high heat until flour is incorporated and white bubbles begin to form on the top of the roux.
- Cook the roux for 2-3 minute after the white bubbles have formed, whisking constantly.
- Gradually add the broth, whisking constantly until the gravy is thickened and comes to a boil.
- Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
- At this point, you can cool, cover and refrigerate the gravy base for as long as 4 days. Reheat in a medium-sized pan. When turkey is done, skim off fat and pour drippings into gravy base and bring it to serving temperature.
