This turkey gravy is thickened with a roux and results in a luscious, creamy, flavorful gravy that you'll want to pour over everything!


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour we used this one for gluten-free!
  • 1/2 cup turkey drippings
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey stock
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Add the butter to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and whisk to combine. Let cook for about one minute, until bubbling.
  • Slowly pour the drippings into the butter and flour mixture, whisking constantly to dissolve any lumps, then slowly pour in the stock, again whisking constantly.
  • Let cook for 3-5 minutes, until thickened and bubbling, then stir in the salt, pepper, and herbs and remove from heat. Serve immediately.
