How to Make It

Step 1

Combine giblets, neck, and 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour or until giblets are tender. Strain, reserving broth. Discard turkey neck. Coarsely chop giblets; set aside.

Step 2

Add reserved broth (2 cups) to turkey pan drippings; stir until browned bits are loosened from bottom of roasting pan.

Step 3

Transfer broth and drippings to a saucepan, if desired, or continue cooking in roasting pan placed over 2 burners on the stovetop. Stir in chopped giblets, if desired. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 4

Combine flour and 1/2 cup water, stirring until blended; gradually stir into gravy. Bring to a boil; boil 1 minute or until thickened. Set aside some plain gravy, if desired. Stir garlic powder and bourbon into remaining gravy. Serve hot.

Step 5

Fix It Faster: Substitute canned chicken broth instead of making homemade broth, if desired.

Was not impressed with this recipe at all - it tasted too "floury" and needed salt and pepper. Worst of all (and this is coming from someone who likes a variety of alcohol), the bourbon (I used Wild Turkey) flavor became too overpowering the next day. Two thumbs down.
