Not cooking a whole turkey but still want homemade turkey gravy? This quick alternative recipe calls for sautéing turkey wings and necks with some veggies and then simmer the mixture with canned chicken broth. Finish it off with poultry seasoning, sage, chopped parsley and a little bit of flour.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook turkey pieces in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Add onion and celery, and sauté 4 minutes. Gradually stir in chicken broth, stirring to loosen particles from bottom of skillet; stir in parsley. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large bowl, discarding solids.

Step 2

Melt butter in Dutch oven over medium heat; whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is golden and smooth. Gradually whisk in broth mixture; increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes or to desired thickness. Stir in remaining ingredients.

This was amazing! I made it for Thanksgiving and all of my guests LOVED it! I even made it the night before and just reheated it on the stove before Thanksgiving dinner- so easy! This recipe is so good and saves some time during a busy meal. Definitely my new go-to gravy recipe!

A great solution when you don't have drippings from a turkey. It takes a while to simmer, but makes a ton. Plus, it makes your whole house smell delicious!

I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner last Sunday evening and it was delicious. I like the idea of making the gravy prior to roasting the turkey. One less thing to worry about the day of!
