Didn't like it. Some of my Thanksgiving guests said it was okay, but the rest of us thought it had a prominent "floury" taste.

Easy and good.

Really good turkey gravy!

Excellent recipe. Used turkey pan drippings instead of the broth and did not use the optional chopped turkey giblets. I did use as other suggested (1 tsp. of each) poultry seasoning, ground bl...

Turned out great! It was the first time I ever made gravy so using the mix as an ingredient made me less nervous. It tasted great and was a big hit at our family Thanksgiving dinner.

This was great. I used the water from cooking the neck as my liquid along with 1C of the turkey drippings. Great flavor and nice consistancy.

Didn't like it. Some of my Thanksgiving guests said it was okay, but the rest of us thought it had a prominent "floury" taste.

Quick, easy, and delicious! My pan drippings made this even better. Wonderful reheated and non-lumpy gravy, this one will remain on the Turkey Day rotation.

I am so scared of homeade gravy! This tasted homeade, looked homeade, and was delicious. I threw in cooked, diced giblets. YUMMY!
