The bacon fat adds depth to the gravy and requires a good quality applewood smoked bacon, preferrably Hog Wild brand. Sage is a good compliment to garlic or rosemary seasoned turkey.

- 1Pour roasting pan juices into a gravy seperator to remove fat. Taste to make sure that juices are not overly salty and are suitable for use in gravy. (Juices should not taste saltier than canned low-salt chicken broth.).
- 2Add juices to a glass measuring cup. Add broth to measure 2 cups. Transfer to a suacepan. (If more than 2 cups of pan juices, boil until reduced to 2 cups liquid).
- 3Cook bacon in skillet over medium heat until brown and crisp. Remove bacon (save for another use). Discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings from skillet.
- 4Add flour. Whisk over medium heat until roux is golden brown (about 3 minutes).
- 5Whisk in broth/juices. Bring to a boil, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low.
- 6Mix in vermouth and sage. Simmer until thickened (about 10 minutes).
- 7Season with salt and pepper.
