Thanksgiving Gravy Recipe
This is the Thanksgiving gravy recipe that I make to go with our turkey and mashed potatoes. My trick is to pour chicken stock into the turkey roasting pan about 15 minutes before I take the turkey out of the oven. That way we get all the turkey flavors.

Instructions
  1. Pour the chicken stock into the bottom of the turkey roasting pan about a fifteen minutes before you expect to take it out of the oven.
  2. As you move the turkey out of the oven to rest (ours rests for 30 minutes), pull the liquid from the roasting pan and into a fat separator. We use a turkey baster to pull the liquid out.

  3. Melt the butter with the flour in a 1.5 quart pan over medium low heat. Whisk the mixture together as the butter is melted.

  4. Whisk in the garlic, rosemary, and thyme, and cook until the house smells amazing. About 5 minutes.

  5. Continue to whisk until the mixture bubbles. It has to bubble to thicken the gravy.
  6. Slowly whisk the chicken stock (and not too much of the fat) with the flour and spices.

  7. Simmer the gravy until it is as thick as you like, usually about 15 minutes.
  8. Add pepper and more thyme or rosemary to suit your taste.
