We all know that gravy can make or break a holiday meal.  Our recipe is not only foolproof, but it’s delicious and easy too!   Using the turkey drippings delivers on the turkey flavor while Swanson broth adds rich and savory notes.  Onion, poultry seasoning and thyme round out the flavor.   Be sure to allow the flour to cook slowly in the drippings until golden brown.  The slow browning helps to develop the flavor and will give you richer tasting gravy.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup turkey pan drippings or melted butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or 33% Less Sodium Chicken Broth or Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Heat the drippings in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Reduce the heat to low.  Add the flour to the saucepan and cook and whisk for 8 minutes or until the mixture is a light brown color.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the thyme and poultry seasoning.  Increase the heat to medium.  Whisk in the broth and heat to a boil.  Cook and whisk until the gravy is thickened.  Season to taste.  Whisk again before serving.
