Perfect Turkey Gravy Recipes
There are many wonderful and different ways that you can make turkey gravy. Some people like to make it with giblets or just with chicken broth or even the drippings from the turkey. I’ve even made it weeks ahead of time to save myself some kitchen craziness on Thanksgiving Day.
My favorite is an old-fashioned gravy from the pan drippings made in just seconds before setting the food on the table. A deep flavorful gravy will enhance everything on your holiday plate with a touch of savory deliciousness.
You can make the Perfect Turkey Gravy Recipe with or without drippings. All you need is butter, flour, black pepper, chicken or turkey stock and/or drippings!
There are a few things you need to keep in mind when making your Perfect Turkey Gravy Recipe.
If you are using cornstarch to thicken instead of another gluten free flour you will skip the roux-making process. You see after you’ve deglazed your roasting pan and added the stock, all you need to do is transfer about 1 cup stock mixture to a medium bowl. Whisk in cornstarch until smooth (you’ll need 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cornstarch for every cup of gravy base in the pan). Return the mixture to the gravy base in roasting pan and whisk over medium-low heat until thickened and smooth.
If you are using arrowroot keep in mind that it can’t be reheated and it’s kind of hard to use as an ingredient. I know, some of you prefer to use it as a thickener. Proceed with gravy recipe as you would for cornstarch (skipping the roux-making process). Transfer about 1 cup gravy base to a medium bowl and whisk in arrowroot (you’ll need 2 tablespoons arrowroot for every cup of gravy base). Just before serving, return arrowroot mixture to gravy base and whisk until thickened and smooth.
If you are using King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour. I personally like this the best. I normally use gluten free flours but once a year I can be bad and eat my gluten. This flour is used just like regular flour in a roux—a 1:1 ratio of flour to butter. Cook the flour in the butter until it’s slightly browned, then add to your stock and pan drippings and whisk away.
If you are using coconut flour or almond flour you would use the same steps as you did with the King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour. A 1:1 ratio of flour to butter. Cook the flour in the butter until it’s slightly browned, then add to your stock and pan drippings and whisk away. Don’t worry this recipe is easy and has a wonderful step by step instructions. You can’t go wrong!
My favorite Turkey Gravy
6 cups turkey pan drippings or 6 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour (or your flour of choice)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/ 2 cup Kerry Gold Butter, ghee or coconut oil or non-dairy whipped butter
I prefer to use the pan drippings and add chicken stock if need be. I also like to boil the gizzards, neck, onion, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf, and peppercorns in my chicken stock if I don’t have enough pan drippings. I cook it for about 25 minutes. Brig it to a boil and simmer for 25 minutes.
If you decide to cook the gizzards, neck, onion, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf, and peppercorns in the chicken stock to give it an extra sting make sure to drain it through a mesh strainer and throw away the gizzards, neck and an onion.
Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the flour, and stir with a whisk to combine. Slowly add your stock as your was whisking the roux. Season with salt and pepper to taste and yum!

I don’t know where to start
Hang in there. This wont happen overnight.
I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start. You can start by taking ownership of your health. I wanted you to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in your body. I am on a path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed.
Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why you have hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, personality changes, leaky gut, depression, an autoimmune disorder, chronic pain, no metabolism and low sex drive, bloating, anxiety, menstrual problems and infertility. It starts with becoming aware and how your health can be influenced by many different circumstances.
How would you define good health? Logically one would define good health as absence of a disease or following some sort of ground rules that avoid developing a disease. This book can help you begin to understand what a Keto Autoimmune protocol is and start guiding you in the redevelopment and healing of your body. You will begin to understand how to fix your gut, strengthen your immunity and fight inflammation with an autoimmune approach. The Keto AIP removes all the common inflammatory food triggers that stimulate a possible autoimmune reaction in the body. Along with helping to reset those adrenals, boosting that energy and doing a little ass kicking to those hormones that have decided to act like a wild college student and pull an all-nighter the day before final exams.
Your health doesn’t have to be a difficult situation but a positive realization that things need to change. This new lifestyle change has many parts to it and I hope you will embrace not only the physical but the spiritual awakening. Common food intolerances that are known to trigger inflammation are eliminated in this Keto AIP protocol are Nightshades, Eggs, Grains (gluten), Dairy, Legumes, Corn, Soy, Dairy and lectins.
