The Best (Do-Ahead) Turkey Gravy
100 mins (prep 10, cooking 90)
13 ingredients
6 servings
Thought I'd post this recipe I found in the Nov. 2002 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine early (for those who don't suscribe). I have always made my turkey gravy (in large quantities) in advance of cooking Thanksgiving dinner (only so many burners, and limited oven space available on "turkey day"). I'm posting this recipe because I think its better than the one I've used for years, and any "short cut/advanced prep" that frees up oven/burner space on "turkey day" is a big help to me, so I wanted to share it with all my Zaar friends :) This recipe can be prepared up to 3 days in advance of serving, and reheated in the microwave when needed. BTW: Turkey wings can usually be had at a major discount at most supermarkets/butchers prior to the holidays, since they frequently remove the wings when they "package" the breast roasts. Ask your poultry supplier/butcher to put some aside for you ;)
