    Recipe #77787 provided the a high-quality homemade turkey stock essential for Guiltless Turkey Gravy. Also, I added 2 teaspoons of Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base for a deeper poultry flavor. I used chilled store-bought chicken broth for the water in the cornstarch slurry. Since the first slurry did not sufficiently thicken the gravy to my preference (I like a thick sauce), an additional three tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in an equal amount of cold broth produced a creamy rich gravy. Thank you, DoryJean54, for a gravy gobbled up by gratified Thanksgiving guests.

    Made as directed, and found the gravy too thin...so I added another 1/4 cup of cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water, and that seemed to do the trick. Very very good!

    We love Gravy but have to cut down on fat - this was a perfect alternative. I left out the salt. I will add more seasoning next time probably Ms. Dash Original or Lemon Pepper. It's a keeper. Thanks!
