Mom's Pan Turkey Gravy

"Super easy gravy to make and VERY tasty! I use this recipe to make chicken gravy as well. Can also be used to make a delicious gravy for roasts, just use beef broth instead of chicken. Came from my mom, as most everything does!"

Ready In:
2 cups


  • pan dripping, from roasted turkey
  • 14 cup flour
  • 1 12 cups chicken broth
  • 14 cup milk, cold
  • salt & pepper


  • After roasting the turkey, transfer it to a platter. Either place roasting pan on burner of stove or place dripping in a pan on stove. Turn burner to medium heat.
  • Mix flour with cold milk in a jar with a lid and shake to remove lumps. Add a little bit of the pan drippings to jar and mix.
  • Pour milk/flour mixture into the roasting pan with drippings. Add broth. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Turkey gravy is usually not very thick. If you want the gravy thicker, add more flour/milk.
  • Season with salt & pepper.
  • OPTIONAL: I always take the giblets, put them in a pan and cover with water and cook on slow simmer until done, about 2 hours. Then chop the meat and add it to the gravy. Yum!

I am a fifth grade teacher completely dedicated to my job. I spend most of my time correcting papers, working on lesson plans, and bettering myself as an educator. I love to share my joy of cooking and baking with my class through the use of recipe integration with math. I also bring a lot of treats to my kids. :) I am also a newly-wed just finding my feet as a cook for more than one. My husband and I love to fish and hunt, and also to eat what we catch. We always have a freezer full of venison, elk, and various fish. I replace most of the beef in recipes with ground venison. Many of my cooking skills come from my mother, who managed an upscale restaurant for a number of years. She also learned from her grandmothers, who were well know n for being fantastic chefs. My favorite recipe book is her collection in an accordion file that she has gathered since childhood. As you can tell, I LOVE Spongebob. It is the best way to wind down from a long day- you don't have to think! :) I am an avid reader, and must always have a book with me. As a teacher, most books I read are fifth grade level, although I do get to enjoy an adult book every now and then. My husband is an avid Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packer fan, so we watch a lot of sports. I love to be outside gardening, camping, taking walks, or just playing. We LOVE to grill, and my favorite is brats boiled in beer!! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
