Ingredients

1/4 c turkey drippings (fat and juices from roasted turkey, whole or cuts)

1/4 c all-purpose flour

2 c turkey stock or chicken stock

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

Pour drippings from the roasting pan into a 2 cup measuring cup or bowl, leaving the larger chunky brown bits in the pan.

Put 1/4 cup of the drippings in a small pot on the stove over medium-low heat. Stir in flour.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly.

Stir in stock, and bring it to a boil, stirring constantly.

Continue boiling and stirring for a couple minutes or until gravy reaches desired consistency.

Add salt and pepper, and adjust seasoning to your taste.
