  1. Heat turkey fat in a medium saucepan. Saute shallot until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add flour; mix well and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in turkey stock and chicken broth slowly. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring constantly, until gravy thickens slightly. Add chives, thyme, and sage and serve hot.


  • Cook's Note:
