  • Pour the turkey drippings into a saucepan, and gradually whisk in the flour. Bring the mixture to a simmer over low heat and cook until the mixture is a golden brown color, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in the turkey stock until the gravy is smooth; mix in a little water if desired. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, and celery salt, then simmer about 15 more minutes to thicken the gravy and blend the flavors.

This is a great base recipe and I say so because it's versatile. I added a few things and less of others!!!! I added some turkey trimmings and bell seasoning I used chicken stock since I don't have turkey stock on hand!!! I omitted the water and added more turkey drippings and added more flour as I needed more gravy for my recipe!!!! Thanks SassyCassyMommy!!!! Read More

Pretty good. I used mostly the drippings from the turkey and a little bit of stock. I think the amount of gravy doesn't make enough for 20 and I needed to use lots of corn starch to get it to thicken it up. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was my first even attempt at making gravy and it turned out wonderfully! I didn't have celery salt so I used celery seed instead and I used chicken stock instead of turkey stock. Read More

I am using this recipe again this Thanksgiving and realized I haven't raved about it! My bad! I make this exactly as it says. I use the drippings inside the turkey and add a little water as "stalk" because it's Thanksgiving....the only day eating such horrendously fattening delight is socially acceptable and by god it comes out amazing! Use this recipe and then ruuuuun like Forrest because a moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips people;)::please forgive the random ramble. I'm taking a break from baking and I don't want to go back:: Read More

Very Yummy! I used chicken stock as well because it was what I had on hand. This will be my go-to gravy recipe for turkey gravy next year. Read More

This recipe is 5 stars because it's EASY and DELICIOUS!!! We roasted our turkey with onion and celery chunks underneath so it was in the turkey stock. I buzzed up the onion and celery chunks before adding them to the saucepan. I followed the recipe except for adding the water and the celery salt (didn't have it ). I've been eating gravy other people have made for Thanksgiving and Christmas for as long as I can remember. This was my first attempt and it was just good if not better than the others. Read More

I'm rating my modification as 5 stars. This is what I did. Instead of turkey stock I used 2 cans of vegetable broth ( 15 oz). We didn't use any water salt pepper or celery salt. Read More

Delicious and easy. I made exactly as written except that I used Campbell's low sodium chicken stock instead of turkey stock and didn't add any water. I might try to make it slightly thicker next time by adding a bit less stock. Read More
