Every year, my favorite part of my Thanksgiving meal is the cranberries. It’s my usual.
Well, this year, things have changed. I went out on a limb and changed up my “usual” gravy recipe.
I know. Watch out. Lacey’s getting adventurous.
Okay…and on my green beans too.
It was that good, people.
Yay for trying new things!
Homemade Turkey Gravy
3/4 stick unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 medium onion, chopped
1 cup turkey drippings, fat skimmed
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper, plus more to taste
Melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until very tender and almost golden. Add kosher salt and pepper. Add flour and stir to combine well. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add broth and turkey drippings. If there is not enough turkey drippings, add enough chicken broth to make 2 cups. Stir to combine. Cook until mixture has thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Season to taste. Serve immediately.
