Turkey Gravy Without the Drippings | We usually smoke our turkey which means I don’t have any drippings for my gravy. Trust me I have tried to make gravy with the smoked turkey drippings and it was disgusting. This easy to make Turkey Gravy Without the Drippings is just as delicious with rich dark brown flavor. Because holiday cooking is crazy enough I made the gravy the day before, saved some of the broth and added it to thin out the gravy. What a relief it was to already have this made and in the refrigerator waiting for me. I do the same with mashed potatoes. I make them a day in advance, store the potatoes in a foil pan covered with foil and put the pan in the oven to heat up while I bake the ham. It’s so awesome and takes a lot of stress off of me.
Wondering how I get what should be a light gravy so brown? It’s all about the browning of the flour and butter. This step adds such a rich deep flavor to the gravy. Melt the butter, sprinkle the flour over the butter, whisk together and cook until the flour/butter mixture has turned a beautiful brown color.
By the way I found turkey broth at Trader Joe’s. Yet another reason for me to LOVE that store.
