In my opinion turkey & Gravy go together like peas & carrots, peanut butter & jelly, or even milk & cookies! You just can’t have one without the other. Making homemade gravy is so easy and just takes a few minutes once your turkey is done. It’s also wonderful to drizzle it on your mashed potatoes and dressing. Yum! Drooling happening here!! But, if you notice the below picture of my Thanksgiving plate you will notice that I didn’t just drizzle my gravy…I basically made a small pond on my potatoes. That’s just how I like it and there’s really no other way folks!! 😉
Now, if you aren’t making a whole turkey and are worried that you won’t have the turkey broth to make the gravy don’t worry. You can substitute turkey broth with chicken stock and you really won’t be able to tell much of a difference. You can buy it in a box or make your own. However you make your gravy it is a must to have with your Thanksgiving meal this year.
How do you make your gravy? Do you add different things to yours such as mushrooms, shallots, or herbs? What do you like to put your gravy on? I’d love to hear back from you!
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup butter
- 4 cups Turkey broth
- 1-2 cups cut up turkey breast or thigh
- Melt butter in a pan over medium heat; whisk in the flour and cook whisking constantly for about 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is light brown and smooth.
- Slowly whisk in the turkey broth.
- Increase the heat and bring to a simmer whisking occasionally.
- Add 1-2 cups of cut up turkey
- At this point depending on how you like your gravy you could add 3/4 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, or 1/2 tsp black pepper.
I hope that all of you have a wonderful start to your week and are blessed in everyway possible!
