Turkey Gravy with Turkey Stock
1 cup homemade turkey stock (you CAN substitute canned stuff, but it won’t be nearly as good.)
1 tbsp all purpose flour*
1 tbsp butter or schmaltz**
1 pinch fresh thyme
salt to taste
- Throw the butter/schmaltz, flour, and thyme into a sauce pan. Heat on medium until bubbly.
- Whisk in stock and bring to boil.
- Add salt to taste
- Pour into gravy boat and serve
- * I like a loose gravy since it tends to thicken as it cools. If you like a nice, thick gravy, up the amount of flour and butter to 1.5 tbsp per cup of stock.
- *Schmaltz makes this thing really taste like it used pan drippings. Use it if you have it!
Seriously guys? That’s it. That’s all she wrote. And that gravy is as rich and delicious as though it was scraped up from the bottom of a roasting pan, I swear to god.
