Turkey pan drippings
This recipe can be made with or without drippings from a turkey. I pour the liquid and fat from the roasting pan into a separator cup. Any small bits of roasting vegetables that falls into the cup gets incorporated into the gravy for extra flavor as a bonus. If your basting liquid is not enough to make 1 ½ cups, you will need to add either water or turkey stock to the cup to make up the difference.
Turkey gravy instructions
Start by making a roux of the sage butter and flour. If you are using some (no more than ¼ cup) finely diced basting vegetables, stir them in as the roux is browning.
Next, whisk pour in the liquid, being careful not to add too much if the separated fat.
Once the gravy thickens, turn off the heat. If you opted to use the vegetables, puree the gravy with a blender until smooth.
Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed.
