Easy No-Fail Make Anytime Turkey 🦃 Gravy
YIELD 5 cups (approx)
1⁄2 cup butter (can use hard margarine)
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper (more is better, I use freshly ground pepper)
4 cups pan drippings (or see options below the recipe)
Drain the pan drippings for the roasted turkey through a fine strainer.
Let sit and then remove any fat from the top of the drippings.
Add in chicken broth or water to make 4 cups if necessary.
In a medium saucepan, melt margarine or butter.
Add in lots of black pepper.
Add in 1/2 cup flour plus 3 tablespoons; constantly whisk for about 3 minutes over low heat.
Slowly add in the 4 cups turkey broth/drippings; whisk constantly over medium-low heat until bubbly and thickened (about 3 minutes).
Use right away or keep warm over lowest heat setting, whisk again before serving.
**OPTIONS** to make this gravy using all chicken broth prepare as directed using 4 cups low sodium chicken broth and 1 tablespoon chicken boullion powder ~ or you may add in low sodium chicken broth omitting bouillon powder to pan drippings to make up 4 cups.
