Turkey Gravy Recipe

Vote 0 Votes

Not having gravy for the mashed potatoes and stuffing at your Thanksgiving and Christmas feast is like having your uncle show up with his nudist girlfriend - incredibly awkward to explain to the kids. Gravy is one of those holiday treats meant to be enjoyed. I've had many variations I enjoy tremendously, this one is best prepared while drinking as much wine as you add to the pan (or maybe a little more).
