Easy Turkey Gravy Recipe

Ingredients

Gravy Base
  • 4 cups turkey broth or stock
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary
For Thickening
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 1/3 cup cold water or cold broth
OR
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup cold water or cold broth

Instructions

To Prepare Gravy With Flour
  1. Combine 6 tablespoons flour to every 2 cups broth or water and shake in a jar with a lid (I prefer broth!).

  2.  Add to gravy base while whisking until thickened. Let boil 1 minute.

  3. Stir in fresh herbs and season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.

     

To Prepare Gravy With Cornstarch
  1. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl and set aside. Bring prepared broth to a boil over medium high heat. Add any turkey drippings if available (I cook the gravy right in the turkey roasting pan on my stovetop).

  2. While whisking, slowly pour the cornstarch slurry into boiling gravy a little bit at a time. Continue adding until gravy reaches desired consistency.

  3. Stir in fresh herbs and season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
