Sharing is caring!

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.  

Best Turkey Gravy

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!

Best Homemade Turkey Gravy

The secret to making the smoothest and creamiest homemade turkey gravy is using the beurre manié techinique. Homemade turkey stock will also take your gravy to the next level. This recipe has been the way I have made gravy for over 40 years. It is rich in flavor and smooth as silk.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups turkey stock
  • salt
  • pepper


    Mix together butter with flour to form the beurre manie.

    Place turkey stock in a large, shallow frying pan or roasting pan from the turkey on the stove over medium heat.

    Whisk in the beurre manié until smooth, then switch to a wooden spoon and continue stirring until thick.

    Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Beurre manié is the best kept secret for making ultra smooth and lump free gravy.
