How to Make Gravy

Master delicious homemade gravy in just minutes (and five steps!) by using the fat and juices from your roasted turkey.

You know the expression “it’s gravy?” As in, it’s ultra-easy? We’re pretty sure whoever thought of that phrase was referring to Betty Crocker’s recipe for Foolproof Turkey Gravy. Added bonus: You already have most of what you need to make the gravy since you’ve just roasted your first turkey like a pro!

What you’ll need:

  • Ingredients for Foolproof Turkey Gravy.
  • Bowl
  • Mixing spoon

How to:

1. Pour turkey drippings (the fat and juices from your roasted turkey) from the roasting pan into a bowl, leaving the brown particles in the pan. Measure out ¼ cup of the drippings and return them to the roasting pan.
2. Sprinkle ¼ cup of flour into the pan and cook over medium heat. How-to-Make-Gravy_02
