Cream Turkey Gravy

Photo: JoAnne Barnum

This is taken from the Brined Maple Turkey recipe included in our family Thanksgiving menu. It needs its own page, since it is possible for a harried cook to forget something even so essential as the gravy. The original recipe is from Cooking Light November 2002.

Yield: 1 serving
Community Recipe from


  • giblets
  • 1 can(s) chicken broth 14 1/2 oz
  • 1 cup(s) milk
  • 2 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • turkey drippings


  1. To prepare gravy, while turkey bakes, combine reserved giblet and neck and the broth in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes. Strain mixture through a colander into a bowl, discarding solids.

  2. Place a zip-top plastic bag inside a 2-cup glass measure. Pour pan drippings into bag; let stand 10 minutes (fat will rise to the top).

  3. Seal bag; carefully snip off 1 bottom corner of bag. Drain drippings into broiler pan, stopping before fat layer reaches opening; discard fat. Add broth mixture. Place broiler pan on stovetop over medium heat, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Combine milk and cornstarch in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk; add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

  4. Strain gravy through a sieve into a bowl. Discard solids. Stir in salt and pepper.
