DIRECTIONS

  • Pour turkey drippings through a stainer into a fat separator. Pour turkey juices (minus fat) into a large heatproof measuring cup, add enough turkey stock to make 2 1/2 cups.
  • Place drip pan over high heat and deglaze it with Madeira. Strain the pan mixture into measuring cup.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan. Add shallots, and cook over medium heat until soft and translucent, 3 minutes, stirring with a spoon. Add flour, and cook until dark golden brown, 2 minutes, stirring with a spoon.
  • Remove saucepan from heat, whisk in stock-Madeira mixture and heavy cream.
  • Return to heat, and gradually bring sauce to a boil, whisking steadily.
  • Briskly simmer thickened sauce until slightly reduced, whisking often, about 3 minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
