Lauren Allen of TastesBetterFromScratch.com always had two turkeys at Thanksgiving dinner when she was growing up — one made by her mother, and another by her grandmother.
“They would both use the turkey drippings to make the best homemade gravy,” she recalled.
The Arizona-based Allen noted that this recipe uses both turkey giblets and drippings to achieve more depth of flavor and creaminess (you don’t have to use the giblets if you prefer).
“I love to drizzle this on top of my turkey and make a little ‘well’ out of the mashed potatoes to pour this into,” she said.
She also said this gravy is great drizzled on top of a leftover turkey and cranberry sandwich the next day.
