Oh, Thanksgiving, how I love you. The mounds of mashed potatoes and layers of ham and turkey all covered and coated in delicious homemade turkey gravy. What could be better? There’s one area of your Thanksgiving meal that isn’t work taking shortcuts, in my mind, and that’s with your gravy!
Homemade 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
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.
In the end, you’ll have this delicious homemade gravy that can accent your entire Thanksgiving day meal!
