I was skeptical of this recipe but had only a small amount of drippings so in desperation gave it a try. To my delighted surprise it turned out great. Not bland as I had feared. I like salty gravy but this was a little too salty possibly due to the seasonings on my turkey. Will start with one bouillon cube next time and add the second if needed. Read More

I have made this twice now once for Thanksgiving and once for Christmas. It turned out perfect on Thanksgiving but a little runny on Christmas. I think it was my fault though because I was too busy multitasking. The flavor is extremely rich and amazing. Read More

I had enough drippings for half a cup but still used 1/4 cup flour and instead of water used chicken broth and it was great. Will definitely save this recipe for the future. Read More

Woohoo!!! This recipe saved my dinner at the last minute! We stayed too long at church and my turkey breast was over-cooked and dry. I only had exactly 1/4 cup of drippings and found this recipe. Not only was it great because I had all the simple ingredients on hand but it was easy enough that I was able to make it gluten free by substituting the flour and bouillon for gluten free options. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This gravy saved our Thanksgiving! We forgot the gravy and made some last minute. We didn't follow this recipe exactly but it was a great guide. We used veggie stock instead of water and bouillon the dripping and a can of cream of chicken soup. It was perfect! Read More
