I’m 100% a gravy girl. I blame my southern roots, but I love gravy on pretty much all of my Thanksgiving food as well as biscuits and gravy and pork in mushroom gravy. I can’t get enough of it.

My Papa, on the other hand, doesn’t like gravy at all. (Which totally blows my mind.) That of course means more delicious gravy for me during the big Thanksgiving dinner. Even if you’re like my Papa and not a fan, this recipe is so easy and delicious, your guests will never know you don’t like gravy.

Homemade Turkey Gravy Ingredients

Step 1

After you finish cooking your turkey, pour all of the pan drippings into a small pot.

Step 2

Bring to a soft boil over medium high heat.

Step 4

Then, whisk in your flour until well combined.

Step 5

Once your flour is thoroughly mixed into your drippings, whisk in 1 cup of turkey broth and return to a boil for 5 minutes.

Step 6

Next, reduce the heat, stir in salt, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 7

After 10 minutes, check your gravy to see if it is the consistency that you want. If it is too thick, add in additional turkey broth 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached.

This homemade turkey gravy is so incredibly easy to make. Once you know the basic recipe, start to play around with the flavors. Add in some onion powder and paprika for a delightful flavor take on classic turkey gravy. Make your gravy sweeter by mixing in a small amount of cranberry sauce during step 2. Get creative with your holiday flavors!

If you’re feeling super ambitious, you can make your own broth from the turkey neck and the carcass but since your turkey has to be carved for that, I recommend canning the broth for next year’s gravy instead.
