Easy Turkey Gravy

Easy Turkey Gravy

This is a thick Southern-style turkey gravy. It’s made in a saucepan like a white sauce, with the strained turkey juices added to the roux.

If you don’t have enough turkey juices, add reduced-sodium chicken broth to make 5 cups. This gravy is simple and plain and invites improvisation. I sometimes add herbs, wine or juice.

Serves: 12 Save
