    Easiest gravy recipe I've found!!  -  25 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe worked a like a magic trick! I'd roasted turkeys before, but never made gravy. My turkey didn't produce the half-cup of fat drippings, so I started with half a cup of butter and half a cup of flour. Whisk, whisk, whisk. After 5 minutes I tasted it, and it was floury-tasting, so I cooked it a little longer, still floury. Well, time was running short, had to proceed, so I added 2 cups of my turkey stock and the cup of pan drippings. Dear husband took a turn with whisking, then I finished, and IT TURNED INTO GRAVY! It was absolutely delicious, and it was all gone at the church Thanksgiving potluck. I AM A GRAVY-MAKER! (Thanks to you!)  -  24 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
