Easy Turkey Gravy

Gravy: condiment of Pilgrims everywhere

This recipe was taught to me by my step-mother when I was a teenager. I was surprised how something so easy turned into a thick, bubbly, and delicious gravy–and I helped!

Tip: Make sure the roasting pan can endure stove top heat. If not, simply scrape and remove drippings to a stove top safe pan.

Easy Turkey Gravy
Turkey drippings in pan
2 cups water or organic chicken broth
ThickenThin/Not Starch
After removing the turkey from the roasting pan, place pan on stove top. Add 2 cups water, ThickenThin, and salt (to taste) (if the turkey was brined with salt, omit salt in this step). Turn heat to medium high, stirring liquid constantly to keep from burning in the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn heat to low, stirring occasionally to keep gravy from burning.
Serve with mashed cauliflower and turkey.

Added bonus: This recipe also facilitates some of the cleaning of the roasting pan since water is boiled within.

  1. It seems the manufacturer of Thicken Thin Not Starch is no longer in business and you can no longer purchase this product. What do you use to replace this in your recipes?

  2. Can I use arrowroot to thicken?
