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.
Traveling with your Turkey Gravy Tip:
If making the gravy in advance—pour cold gravy into a small slow cooker. Turn the heat on high. Heat through. At first the gravy will be lumpy but as it warms and gets hot the lumps will disappear. Whisking helps too. Once the gravy is hot, turn the slow cooker to warm until ready to serve. To transport: If your small slow cooker is like mine it doesn’t have any clamps on the handle. First, place a piece of foil on top of the slow cooker, then place the lid on top of the foil. This will create a suction. Then, add bungee cords to keep the lid nice and tight. No spills! Then when I got to my destination I plugged it in!

Recipes to go with the Turkey Gravy without the Drippings
- The Best Holiday Mashed Potatoes
- Smoked Turkey
- Smoked Baked Beans
- Six Dazzling Dinner Rolls
- Maple Blackberry Orange Glazed Ham
- 4 cups turkey broth
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
Pour turkey broth into a medium saucepan and heat until warm. NOTE: You don't have to bring the broth to a boil just until steamy and warm. In a large skillet melt the butter. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and whisk together. Continue cooking and whisking until the flour has become brown. Add warm broth a ladle at a time to the flour mixture whisking as you go. TIP: Make the gravy thinner than you want because when the gravy cools it will thicken up. Or if you're making the gravy ahead of time save some of the broth for when you re heat the gravy. Add salt and pepper.
