Not Just Any Old Brown Gravy Recipe


Learn to make brown gravy from scratch by following a few basic steps

For a flavorful brown gravy, use the drippings in the bottom of your roasting pan.

Gravy is an essential part of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner; your turkey and mashed potatoes just wouldn’t be the same without it. If you’ve been buying store-bought gravy, consider making your own from scratch this Thanksgiving (the premade version tends to be loaded with salt and preservatives).

The basic process of making gravy is simple; make a roux by mixing equal parts flour and fat, add any meat drippings that you have (on Thanksgiving Day it will likely be turkey drippings from the roasting pan), deglaze the pan with stock or wine, and then season the gravy, whisking and stirring as you go.

If you’re looking for a special brown gravy recipe to serve alongside your dinner this year, we’ve got one that you should try; it has extra sweetness from Vidalia onion and a hint of spice from freshly cracked black pepper. The recipe also calls for homemade stock, making this brown gravy even more flavorful and delicious, but store-bought stock will work in a pinch.
