We look forward to our Thanksgiving meals year-round. Not only can we eat the most delicious food, but we can also spend time with friends and family.how can we no Thanks for all this? ! We think the turkey is the star of the meal, but the side dishes and gravy shouldn’t be overlooked either. Creamy mashed potatoes, crunchy and tender green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows…and of course healthy gravy poured over everything! Homemade turkey gravy is a personal favorite of ours, and luckily it’s so easy to make. There’s often not enough juice in the roasting pan to make enough gravy, so all you need to do is poke around your pantry for some ingredients before you’re ready to commit. You will love it!

Broth Choices:

You should be able to find turkey stock at your local supermarket. If you can’t, feel free to use chicken broth. You can add broth to turkey stock to achieve the desired total.

What’s the trick to making the best gravy?

It all starts with those delicious turkey soups. Use a small whisk to scrape it off the bottom of the pot, then use a little broth to help loosen any sticky bits. You’ll also have to decide whether to filter the droplets before adding the rest of the ingredients. We personally like to strain ours following the instructions in the video below. You can skip the draining step if you like to have small pieces of browned turkey in yours!

Butter substitute:

We highly recommend using real butter. If you’re lactose intolerant or don’t eat dairy, you can always substitute lard or a neutral flavored oil.

Flour Substitutes:

If you are gluten free, you can substitute 1:1 cornstarch for the gravy. Flour does work a bit better in this recipe, but choose what fits your diet.

Can I freeze turkey gravy?

Yes! Once completely cooled, store in a freezer-safe airtight container for 4-6 months. To reheat, let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then reheat in the microwave following the directions below.
