Turkey Gravy recipe

Turkey Gravy Ingredients: 

  • Bones or gizzards from a roasted turkey
  • 3 cup water or chicken broth
  • ¼ cup flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary

Homemade Turkey Gravy


In a large pot add turkey bones, or gizzards, and cover with chicken broth or water. You will need enough liquid to cover the bones, so scale the recipe accordingly. Simmer on medium heat for about 1 hour on the stove top, stirring occasionally.

Use a slotted spoon to remove bones or gizzards. Continue to simmer on low heat while you prepare and add the additional ingredients.

Combine flour with equal parts broth (pulled from the pot) in a small mason jar with a lid; shake it up to combine.

Gradually whisk in the flour mixture into the drippings until smooth.

Add salt, pepper, and rosemary. Whisk well before transferring to your gravy boat.

No Thanksgiving is complete without the gravy. I'm pretty sure my hubby puts it on everything on his plate. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us at Merry Monday!

Turkey gravy is one of those must-haves for Thanksgiving! For me, I love gravy on my turkey and mashed potatoes - it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!

That looks great! I love to put gravy on the turkey the mashed potatoes and sometimes even the stuffing.
