Why This Recipe Works

The best turkey gravy recipe starts with the broth, which takes a little bit of time to acquire great flavor. First, we browned the turkey giblets and neck, then added a chopped onion and covered and cooked the mixture until the onion was softened and browned. We then added low-sodium chicken broth and fresh herbs and simmered the mixture for another half-hour before straining. We added this broth to a light brown roux made with flour and butter for a turkey gravy recipe with a silky consistency and rich flavor.
