Homemade Turkey Gravy

Making turkey gravy at home from turkey drippings is easy!

Homemade turkey gravy made from pan drippings is a must for Thanksgiving!

Anytime I try to serve my kids mashed potatoes without gravy they look at me like I’m insane. And maybe I am. Because what are mashed potatoes without gravy? Gravy is the glue that often brings a whole meal together, and nowhere is that more true than on Thanksgiving. It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a heavy drizzle of gravy over most of the things on my plate.

And making homemade turkey gravy doesn’t have to be difficult or take a long time! I understand why many resources tell you to make gravy ahead of time to get it out of the way, but it takes less than 10 minutes to make from scratch with the drippings from your roasted turkey, and can easily be done while the turkey is resting. So, put someone else on turkey carving and table setting duty, and let’s make some gravy!
