  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 4 c. of turkey pan drippings strained or chicken broth


  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in black pepper.
  • Slowly add flour, whisking continuously until mixture is smooth.
  • Slowly whisk in drippings or chicken broth into the pan. Make sure to whisk continuously. Cook gravy for several minutes until it thickens up.
  • Serve immediately or keep warm on low heat until ready to serve.



  • Gluten Free - Simply substitute corn starch for flour at a 1:2 ratio to make this gluten free. That means you'd use 1/4 c. corn starch instead of 1/2 c. flour.
  • Gravy with milk - If you are looking for a creamy gravy like sausage gravy just substitute part of the liquid for milk. 
  • Avoid lumps - The trick to making gravy lump free is to whisk continuously and slowly add in the flour while whisking. 
  • Thicker Gravy - If you would like the gravy thicker simply whisk in a little more of the flour or cornstarch. Although make sure you simmer it before you do this as it will thicken as it simmers.
