    Yes, it was a simple to make recipe. The family loved it.  -  10 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This gravy was awesome! I cooked my turkey in a bag and when it came out of the oven, I took a ladle and skimmed off the fat and some of the juices into a saucepan. Brought it to a boil and whisked in the half cup of flour. It started to get really thick and clumpy but then I stirred in 3 cups of the turkey drippings (I had added a can of chicken broth to the bird prior to cooking) brought it to a boil, while stirring constantly and it thickened up and tasted fantastic! Loved it and will make it every year from now on!  -  28 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Simple and so good! The best turkey gravy we’ve had and it reheated perfectly days later.  -  17 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
