How to Make Turkey Gravy from Drippings
Thanksgiving and Christmas are all about the turkey, but no matter what your favourite part of these festivities is, homemade turkey gravy is the real star. Turkey gravy can be made in a variety of ways. You can use the giblets inside your turkey – the neck, heart, liver, and gizzards – or you can leave them out and make your gravy with broth only. Our favourite version is a simple, traditional gravy from the roasting pan drippings prepared just minutes before setting all the food on your Christmas dinner table. Drippings are what’s left in the pan after cooking the turkey, including melted fat and any bits of meat that have fallen off. These beautifully browned and flavourful scrapings are a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.
A turkey gravy with drippings is also extremely easy to make. In about twenty minutes, you can go from roux to table with only a pan and a whisk. Impress your guests and add a special touch to your Christmas feast with this foolproof, step-by-step guide to making the most delicious turkey gravy to pour over your mashed potatoes and turkey.
