  • 4 tbsp turkey drippings
  • 1 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 cup turkey stock
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • rosemary and/or thyme if desired


  • Add fat to the skillet over medium heat.
  • Once heated, whisk in flour combining with fat and continue to whisk allowing it not to burn but to brown. This should take about 5 minutes or so or until it turns golden brown.
  • Whisk in stock and allow it to continue to cook over medium heat to thicken for about 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in butter. Constantly stir to avoid sticking.
  • If it comes out too thick, add more turkey stock 1 tablespoon at a time until it’s thinned to your liking. Add broth slowly. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
  • Whisking thoroughly while adding the flour into the fat is essential. Add in your liquid very slowly and continue to whisk until the roux is completely incorporated and not lumpy.


To reheat, add gravy to a pot over low heat and whisk to make sure it stays smooth. You can add a bit more stock if it is too thick.
You can also store in the fridge until you want to enjoy.
