Delcious creamy homemade turkey gravy.
Removed turkey from pan and skim off any fat. Set drippings aside to be used later.
in a skillet or large pan melt butter. When melted slowly whisk flour in until smooth. Let flour bubble for a one-two minutes on low heat.
Bring heat up to med-high heat and slowly add 4 cups drippings or broth while whisking continually. When gravy has thickened add remaining gravy to your desired consistency. (less drippings a thicker gravy, more drippings thinner gravy)
Add herbs and bring gravy to a simmer. Let simmer on low for about 30 minutes.Season with salt and pepper if needed. Don't remove from heat until you are ready to serve.
- How much liquid you start with will be the same amount of gravy you end with. If you don't have enough drippings, add chicken broth. - Start the liquid out at a lower heat while adding the flour, whisk in the flour and then increase to a boil. This will help prevent clumping. - Be sure to use any brown bits on the bottom of the roasting pan- they have so much flavor!
