How you doin’? Just two more sleeps ‘till Turkey Day. Many people leave the turkey gray to the very last minute. Please don’t do that. Afterall, aren’t all those Thanksgiving dishes you’ve work so hard to make really just carriers for savory turkey gravy?
This year plan ahead and don't let those drippings in the bottom of the roasting pan go to waste. Use them to make an easy and flavorful turkey gravy from scratch for your holiday feast. Here's how to make delicious turkey gravy from drippings.
4 cups of turkey broth or chicken broth
1/4 cup of reserved turkey fat from the bottom of the roasting pan
1/2 cup of white wine
1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon freshly chopped sage
1/2 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet or soy sauce (for added color and umami flavor)
Other herbs and spices may suit your tastes as well. Try experimenting with a pinch of cloves, a sprinkle of thyme and a touch of mace.
Now that you have the gravy mastered, you'll need plenty of mashed potatoes (tomorrow’s post) and bread stuffing.
ChefSecret: The trick to avoiding lumps in your turkey gravy is to cook together equal parts of flour with a turkey fat. This mixture is known as roux and serves as a thickener for gravy. Generally, 1/2 cup of roux will thicken 4 cups of gravy.
Quip of the Day: Did you hear about a book called “Fifty Shades of Gravy”? It’s very saucy.
