Turkey Gravy

  • Turkey pan drippings (optional)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp Easy Microwave Gumbo Roux
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 ribs celery split, and cut in half
  • 1 carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp. corn starch
  • 2 tsp. cold water

  1. bring chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan, then reduce to a simmer
  2. mix powdered roux with a couple tablespoons of the broth, then whisk it in
  3. add pan drippings, celery, carrot, onion, garlic, bay leaf, salt and pepper
  4. simmer mixture until reduced by one third
  5. mix corn starch with a couple teaspoons cold water, then whisk it in
  6. when gravy thickens, strain it into a serving dish

This gravy is so easy to make, and it tastes great with turkey and mashed potatoes.  Add a little rubbed sage to the gravy and it works great with pork chops or pork tenderloin, too.

Bon Appetit!
