Creating the ‘best turkey gravy ever’ for Thanksgiving

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) — Along with a turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, a must on any dinner table this Thanksgiving is gravy.

Joel Olson from Hemmachef is helping us take the stress out of preparing what he calls the “best turkey gravy ever.” He says his recipe is one you can do ahead of time.

First, you’ll need flour and butter to create a roux. You mix the ingredients together in a skillet on medium heat.

Once the roux is the right consistency, you can add in your choice of stock. Stir until it’s a good thickness.

Olson said those steps can be done days in advance.

To complete the turkey gravy Olson told our Wake Up Wisconsin crew his secret ingredient… turkey pan drippings. He says you just mix it in with the rest of the recipe after your turkey is out of the oven.

Olson also suggested putting your gravy in a teapot for easy pouring and to keep it warm.
