Recipe by Teri
I got this recipe from one of my food mags several years ago. (I believe it was Bon Apitite)The prep time includes boiling the stock and giblets. I usually serve Honey-Brined Turkey with this, as was suggested in the magazine. You can find the recipe here in the "Zaar". That turkey and this gravy are delicious served together!

This is the best gravy I have ever made! I love cream gravy and have never found a recipe for it that was good, but this one is fantastic. I found the directions exaclty and it turned out so good. Everyone raved about it's flavor and texture. This is definately a keeper and one I will be making in the future, over and over. Thanks!
