Serving size: 2 1/2 cups

  • 2 cups turkey drippings
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup skim milk

Defat the pan drippings by placing them in a fat separator cup. (If you don't have a separator cup, pour the drippings into a bowl, add a few ice cubes and skim off the fat once it rises and hardens.) Combine the fat-free drippings, pepper, poultry seasoning and bouillon granules in a 1-quart saucepan. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.

While the gravy is heating, combine the flour and milk in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake until smooth. Slowly add the milk mixture to the simmering broth, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Continue to cook and stir until the gravy is thick and bubbly. Serve warm.
