Turkey Gravy

Prep Time 30 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 4 Cups


  • 4 Cups Turkey Drippings (Or turkey/chicken stock)
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)


  • If using turkey drippings, pour cooking liquids from your roasting pan through a strainer and into a container to cool. Note: if you don't have enough drippings to amount to 4 cups, add water or turkey stock. If you're not using turkey drippings, just use turkey stock.
  • Melt 1 stick butter in a medium pan over medium-low heat and season with salt and pepper.
  • Once melted, add in flour and whisk constantly so it toasts and combines with the butter
  • Continue whisking your roux until you've got a smooth, paste-like mixture.
  • Slowly pour in your turkey drippings or turkey stock, stirring all the while.
  • Cook gravy for another 10 minutes, or until thickened.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Serve immediately or keep on very low heat until ready to serve.
