Homemade Turkey Gravy
This homemade turkey gravy recipe is the best way to get every bit of flavor from your turkey. Be sure to save those drippings!
- After cooking your turkey, dump the turkey drippings into a deep skillet.
- Add butter if your drippings seem to be lacking oil. (This is typically only necessary if you had a small turkey.)
- Add flour 1 TBS at a time until your drippings are no longer wet. Stir well.
- In a large measuring cup or bowl, mix together 2-3 cups of water with 2 tsp of flour.
- Slowly pour the water mixture into the turkey drippings, stirring constantly until it is boiling. You can add some minced turkey at this step for additional flavor.
- Once it boils, you have gravy! Add it to your gravy boats. It will thicken upon cooling.

Just read NYT article where Greg is quoted. I’m bummed you can’t deliver to Arizona (though you’re sold out already for Thanksgiving turkeys). Please let me know if you expand to Arizona : ) This gravy recipe looks fantastic, though my southern-cooking-raised Momma always said during the flour/oil drippings stage – brown the flour in the fat before adding the liquid, and you will get a much richer gravy!
