You can’t have Thanksgiving turkey without the gravy! Never leave your Turkey Day bird naked again with this quick & easy gravy recipe from Alton Brown.
With a few simple ingredients and a little patience, all the fat and turkey drippings left over on the bottom of the roasting pan morphs into a rich, silky gravy sure to leave a lasting impression on everyone who tastes it.
Some people may be gravy purists and reserve delicious gravy for the turkey itself, but turkey gravy is a perfect complement to mashed potatoes and stuffing. You can even kick up your day-after-Thanksgiving sandwich another notch by adding turkey gravy for extra moistness.
So instead of wasting all that deliciousness that accumulates at the bottom of your roasting pan, turn it into a wonderful addition to your holiday dinner. You’ll certainly have your guests saying “It’s all gravy!”
