I am going to say it. I make the best turkey gravy. Hands down, the best. Brace yourself as this turkey gravy is the only recipe you will ever need moving forward. I have been in charge of the gravy during the holidays since I was a kid. Over the years the method has evolved from the way my grandmother made it, to using techniques that work best for me.
I use the beurre manié method to make my gravy, and it comes out perfect every single time. No lumps at all. Don’t fret it is easy and it produces the smoothest and silkiest gravy, ever.
We are working with the American Butter Institute by creating easy how-to videos for their site Go Bold with Butter. We love real butter so the partnership seemed natural for us. Our first video will guide you through the process of making the Best Turkey Gravy using the beurre manié method – you will be hooked.
You also want to be sure to make a batch of this turkey stock for your gravy!
