When cooking a large meal, such as Thanksgiving dinner, I try to find as many shortcuts as possible. One that works well and is just as delicious as starting from scratch, is turkey gravy made with a packaged dry seasoning mix.
I use turkey gravy mix and add chicken broth, dry white wine or dry vermouth, and finish it off with butter to enhance the flavors and give the gravy a homemade touch. Quick and easy is the way to go!
- 2 packages gravy mix (Knorrs Turkey Gravy Mix)
- 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 3 tbs dry white wine (or dry vermouth)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Makes 2 ½ cups gravy
- Remove turkey from roasting pan. Pour off all the fat, retaining all browned bits.
- Set pan over medium heat and pour in 2 cups chicken broth and 2 packages of gravy mix.
- Mix into a smooth paste and continue cooking for several minutes.
- Season to taste with dry white wine and heat for several minutes.
- Strain into gravy boat, stir in 1 tablespoon of butter and serve with turkey.
Note: Gravy can be kept warm on simmer until ready to serve. If gravy becomes too thick add more broth. If gravy is too thin, add Wondra Flour to thicken.
