A Classic Holiday Recipe for Turkey Gravy!
Hi friends! Here is my Super Easy Turkey Gravy Recipe! Keep in mind that the turkey drippings and broth that I used for this recipe was from a 10-pound turkey that was stuffed with onions and lemons. I thought I’d share that with you because a lot of people don’t usually get 4 1/2 cups of broth/drippings from their turkeys. Sometimes they get 2 cups, maybe 3 if they’re lucky. The lemons and onions ADD juice to the turkey; therefore, I always have a lot of broth after I roast my turkeys. The particular recipe I used for this turkey was my Cajun and Herb Turkey recipe. There were plenty of seasonings used; therefore, I didn’t have to add salt and pepper to my gravy. If you use a different recipe for your turkey, you may have to season your gravy.
Also if you DON’T get enough broth from your turkey feel free to use turkey broth or chicken broth! Those will work just fine!
