Turkey Gravy for Thanksgiving or Anytime
What better way to show off your Thanksgiving turkey, than with a rich and flavorful turkey gravy? I love gravy, but it isn't part of our everyday meals at home. I am more likely to make a quick pan sauce or a reduction than I am to make a large amount of gravy. Except for Thanksgiving. Then, I make a generous amount--enough for the Thanksgiving meal as well as leftovers the next day. And the next.
My favorite part of the meal is perfect mashed potatoes served with thick, rich turkey gravy. If there are seconds to be had (and there always are), I'm heading back to the potatoes. The turkey will keep for leftovers, but those creamy mashed spuds have a limited life span so I'm jumping on the mashed potato gravy train. "All aboard!"
