Let’s face it; dry turkey and lumpy potatoes are no fun. If you’ve got enough gravy to put on then nobody’s going to give a hoot. Browned bits left in the bottom of the pan after roasting the turkey give body and depth to the finished gravy.

  • 1/3 Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1/3 Cup Unbleached Flour
  • 6 Cups Turkey Stock
  • 2 Cups Roast Turkey Drippings (Skimmed & Strained)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. In small-size skillet add butter and melt over a medium heat. Whisk in flour. Reduce heat to low and whisk 2 minutes until roux is golden brown.
  2. In large-size saucepan add turkey stock and bring to boil over a medium-high heat. Add turkey drippings. Add kosher salt and pepper. Whisk in roux. Reduce heat to low and simmer 8 minutes.
  3. Note: If you’re short on drippings then skim fat from roasting pan and add 1 to 2 cups water. Scrape up browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Strain liquid through a fine-mesh sieve into stock.
  4. Makes 6 Cups
