Either way, you cant go wrong. This simple recipe, uses the turkey drippings as it's base, and it's the perfect addition to your holiday table.
Truffle Turkey Gravy
This is a super simple and easy recipe. It is very traditional and will make a great use of the leftover turkey drippings. It'll also be a great to use for your leftovers! The hearty full flavor of this gravy recipe will have you licking your plate! Onto the recipe!
1 cup turkey drippings
1 cup chicken broth (I use low-sodium)
3 tbsp butter (I use unsalted)
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp fresh thyme, minced
1 tsp fresh sage, minced
40 g Truffletopia Porcini and White Truffle Cream (half 80g jar)
1/2 tbsp Gravy Master Browning Sauce
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Separate the fat from the turkey drippings using a fat separator (they're about $10-20 online). This step isn't mandatory, but it's best practice.
In a medium to large pan on medium heat, melt the butter.
Whisk the flour in well, and cook for just a minute.
Whisk in turkey drippings (you can certainly use more than a cup, but you'll cut back the difference in your chicken broth), and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and add your fresh herbs and broth. Whisk together and bring to a simmer.
When gravy thickens, turn heat to low heat and add the Gravy Master browning sauce and the Truffletopia Porcini and White Truffle Cream. Let gravy sit on lowest heat setting until ready to use.
Serve and enjoy!
- Feel free to add extra chicken broth if the gravy is too thick.
- You may use turkey stock as a replacement to chicken broth
- Salt and pepper are for taste, if needed. Taste after adding browning sauce and truffle sauce, then add, if needed.
