Servings 4 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups turkey stock
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Whisk the flour into the melted butter. Allow this mixture to cook for two minutes, making sure you are stirring to prevent it from burning.
  • Slowly whisk in the turkey broth, parsley, pepper,and salt. Allow the mixture to come up to a simmer while stirring. Serve warm.


To avoid lumps make sure that you add the turkey stock slowly, while whisking constantly. A little at a time makes a big difference in creating a smooth gravy.
Store turkey gravy in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. This gravy, like most, will thicken up when refrigerated
This gravy is great year round, feel free to replace the turkey stock, with chicken or beef stock.
