This recipe uses a homemade stock. If you prefer pan drippings, substitute the first 7 ingredients for 2 cups pan drippings.

How to Make It

Step 1

Brown turkey necks in hot oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Add onion and celery; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in broth, parsley, and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Pour through a wire-mesh strainer; discard solids.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is golden. Gradually whisk in stock (or pan drippings), wine, and sage; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.

This is an awesome gravy and so easy to do. I have also used turkey drumsticks. I love making it the day before. Less stress for Thanksgiving. I've been making it since Thanksgiving 2006.

This has been my 'go-to' gravy since I made it for Thanksgiving a few years ago. It seems to thicken better when made ahead and rewarmed. We will never buy premade gravy again!
