Easy Turkey Gravy Recipe is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table! This savory sauce is delicious on white & dark meat and mashed potatoes!
I have a love-hate relationship with Thanksgiving. As much as I love all the food and spending time with my family, tackling the big meal head-on and having my kitchen be extra hot can take a toll on a girl (or guy)!

The first year I hosted Thanksgiving it kicked my butt. Luckily I’ve become a pro at Thanksgiving dinner. I know how to cook a turkey like nobody’s business and I outsource the majority of our sides and dessert.
This lets me focus on my husband’s favorite Caramelized Onion & Cornbread Dressing, the big bird, and this yummy gravy recipe. It’s all about not overwhelming yourself and letting everyone become part of the meal.
To keep and saltiness down, I use low-sodium chicken broth and leave out the salt. Really. There are salt and pepper shakers on the table. Anyone who wants more salt can add it. I like this gravy just the way it is.

- Pour the pan drippings from your turkey into a fat separator cup (or a large measuring cup). Let sit while you start the gravy.
- In a medium saucepan or skillet, melt butter. Add flour and pepper and whisk to combine. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Pour the turkey drippings into the saucepan, being sure not to add the fat. (If using a measuring cup, skim off the fat before adding the drippings.) Whisk to combine. Add the chicken stock and whisk to combine. Bring the gravy to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
- Once the gravy has thickened, remove from heat and transfer to a gravy boat for serving.
