Ready In:


  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth (homemade or low sodium)
  • 2 cups water
  • turkey neck, and
  • turkey giblets, from salt & pepper grilled turkey
  • pan dripping, from salt & pepper grilled turkey
  • 14 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, hard cooked and coarsely chopped
  • coarse salt & freshly ground black pepper


  • Bring stock, water, and turkey neck and giblets to a boil in a sauce pan. Reduce heat, and gently simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, pour pan drippings into a clear measuring cup or a gravy separator, and let stand until separated, about 10 minutes. Pour off fat.
  • Pour broth and giblets through a fine sieve, discarding solids. Return broth to pan, add defatted drippings, and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Place flour in a heatproof bowl. Whisking constantly, pour in 1/2 cup boiling-hot broth mixture until it forms a paste. Whisk paste into remaining broth in pan, and boil for 3 minutes. Stir in eggs if desired and season with salt and pepper. Gravy can be refrigerated airtight for up to 3 days; reheat before using.

I am 29 and a stay at home mom to 3 kids, 2 little girls with a sweet little boy sandwiched in between. I love to decorate cakes and make other sweets. I also love cooking healthy fresh whole food dishes, I have to balance out the sweets somehow. On Saturday evenings we entertain friends and try new recipes out and have a big meal together and enjoy the joy that comes around when good food and good company combine! I watch a little boy during the week and my husband works with his father in the family HVAC business. We love to tackle home projects and my husband usually gets the pay off with a really yummy meal. I write and do a little bit of artwork but most of it is translated into cakes now. We love to spend time outside and manage to have a small garden in the backyard that we can eat out of during the summer. I think it would be awesome to have some chickens for eggs and as pets but the neighborhood doesn't allow it so we will have to wait till we move back into the woods again.
