No-Fail Roast Turkey Gravy for Thanksgiving

Kelly Williams


A wonderful easy recipe for turkey gravy just in time for the holidays! *In order to have enough drippings (and your turkey to be tender and juicy!), I always add about 3 cups water to the bottom of my roaster. For large roasters make sure there is at least 1" covering the bottom.
This gravy turns out every time. PROMISE! :D
Happy Thanksgiving! And don't fret!! It only comes once a year... ;)
