Perfect Gravy

Perfect Gravy

The holidays are upon us and everyone needs this perfect gravy recipe.  Use the drippings from your roasted turkey and the gravy will be complete. 


Drippings From Roasted Turkey

3/4 Cup Turkey or Chicken Broth

1/4 Cup Unbleached Flour

1/2 Cup Milk

1 Teaspoon Chicken Bouillon Granules

1/4 Teaspoon Poultry Seasoning

1/8Teaspoon White Pepper

Pour the drippings into a 2 cup measuring cup.  Skim off the excess fat and throw it away.  Add just enough broth to the dripping to fill to 2 cups.  Pour into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  In a small size bowl combine the flour and milk.  Beat until smooth and then gradually pour the flour mixture into the drippings mixture.  Stir in the bouillon granules, poultry seasoning and pepper.  Bring back up to a boil and stir for 4 minutes.  You will want the gravy to be quite thickened.  If you need to thin it out a bit just add a small amount of water.  Makes about 2 cups.
