Easy Turkey Gravy

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

No Thanksgiving feast is complete without rich, creamy gravy, and it’s a snap to prepare with our turkey gravy base—just add milk, simmer and serve. This is a real time-saver (and stress-saver) when you’re trying to get all the other dishes to come together at the last minute. The base also comes in handy if you brine your bird, as the drippings may be too salty to make gravy; if you fry it, drippings will be nonexistent.


  • 1 jar turkey gravy base
  • 2 cups (16 fl. oz./500 ml) milk
  • Homemade turkey or chicken stock, pan drippings or dry
      sherry, to taste (optional)


In a saucepan or pot over medium-high heat, combine the turkey gravy base and milk. Whisk until the gravy comes to a simmer. Add stock, pan drippings or sherry, to taste. Serve warm. Makes 1 quart (32 fl. oz./1 l).
