This gravy rocks! I am a big time cook and I LOVE to make Thanks Giving dinner. But, I also want to have fun and relax with my guests on the holiday. Making this ahead of time is key for me to have both good gravy, and good fun. Also, my taste tester was grinning ear to ear when I made it. (It is SO super easy to make, but don't tell your guests that.) I made it ahead of time and added my turkey drippings to it on Thanks Giving Day to get some more homemade flavor in there...doesn't need anything else though...it's heaven the way the recipe reads. (If you do add your turkey drippings to it: Put premade drippings in sause pan and warm on low heat, whisk often. Skim fat out of dippings and put the good stuff in a small sauce pan over low heat. Slowly whisk in flour to thicken, go slow so you don't over thicken or make lumps. Once you have the consistancy you want slowly whisk drippings into warmed premade gravy. Simmer for about 4 or 5 minutes to allow flavors to combine whisking often.) Don't cut this recipe in half because you need lots of gravy for leftovers. Don't add too much flour - all the reviewers that say it was too thick clearly don't know how to use flour. And finally, don't use yucky box gravy. You can do this! Its so easy and rewarding!
