Classic Pan Gravy

I don’t really like gravy but Bob does so I make it for him.  He said it came out great so we’ll have to take his word for it.  Not sure where the recipe came from, Betty Crocker maybe?

drippings from roasted turkey

1 cup liquid (turkey juices, broth, water)

2 tablespoons flour

After removing turkey from roasting pan, pour drippings (turkey juices and fat) into a measuring cup, leaving brown bits in pan.  Let drippings stand 5 minutes to allow fat to rise.  Skim 2 tablespoons fat from top of drippings and return to pan then discard any remaining fat.  Add enough broth or water to remaining drippings to measure 1 cup.  Stir flour into fat in pan with wire whisk.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly and scraping up brown bits, until mixture is smooth and bubbly.  Gradually stir in 1 cup drippings.  Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.  Boil and stir for 1 minute.
