I made a few changes to my original recipe and it turned out great! Maybe even better. I first browned the giblets in butter and then started the stock. also added brown gravy pack instead of turkey and it gave it a much richer flavor

My step-mother made this gravy and it was incredible! I know it was a little more effort, but it was so worth it! I'll be using this recipe next time I need turkey gravy.

I made this for Thanksgiving 2015. Best gravy ever. Made all except final step the day before. Added drippings/ thickening once turkey was done. Perfect. I had smoked turkey on Big Green Egg & stored it for three hours in empty ice chest after wrapping it with aluminum foil. Turkey was still piping hot & juicy & I had ample time to finish this gravy recipe. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

My first try at making gravy (my mother in law always made it) for Thanksgiving. Upon my husbands first taste, he told me I didn't make enough of it as it was SO good he was sure it wasn't enough to go around the table. This recipe is good for about 6 people. If you have hungry men in the house, I would recommend doubling it for a bigger party.

I had bought some packaged gravy with all my other Thanksgiving fixings but decided I wanted to take it up a notch so after searching several gravy recipes I decided on this one. Oh my it was delicious! Normally the pan of gravy just sits on the stove top until we're ready to eat but every time my husband walked by he dipped a piece of bread or piece of turkey into it while raving about it being the BEST gravy he's ever tasted. I don't have a fat separator so I filled my measuring cup with the turkey drippings and stuck it in the freezer so the fat solidified on top. This will definitely be my go-to Thanksgiving gravy from now on!
