What You Need
Original recipe yields 16 servings
drippings from cooked turkey
Cool water or fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup flour
Let's Make It
Pour drippings (juice and fat) from roasting pan carefully into heatproof measuring cup or fat separator. Let stand until fat rises to the top.
Remove 1/4 cup of the fat; return to roasting pan. Discard any remaining fat. Add enough water or broth to remaining drippings to measure 2 cups.
Gradually add flour to drippings mixture; stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended.
Return drippings mixture to roasting pan over two burners. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
Season to taste with pepper; stirring lightly with wire whisk.
Stir gravy with a wire whisk or wooden spoon. If using a roasting pan to make gravy, a flat whisk or a flat edge wooden spatula allows you to reach the corners of the roasting pan easier.
Stir in 1 to 2 tsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee along with the salt and pepper to enhance the flavor and color of the gravy.
