Victoria's Ridiculously Easy Turkey Gravy
Here is the trick to making this gravy so easy just make it ahead of time and then add the drippings later.
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1/3 Cup Unbleached Flour
4 Cups Chicken Broth
Turkey Pan Drippings
1/4 Cup White Wine
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
In a large saucepan heat the butter over a medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add the flour while whisking and cook for 1 minute. Whisk constantly. Heat the chicken stock and pour in the hot stock while continuing to whisk. Turn the heat down to medium low and simmer for 2 minutes. Whisk occasionally. Remove from the heat and refrigerate if you are not using immediately. This gravy can be made for up to two days ahead of time. When you are ready to finish the gravy reheat the mixture over a medium heat. When the turkey is done remove it from the roasting pan and let it rest before carving. Pour out the fat from the pan, but leave the drippings. Put the roasting pan on the burner over a medium heat. Pour the white wine into the pan with the reserved drippings. Stir and scrap with a spoon to loosen the browned bits. Pour into the warmed gravy mixture that you prepared ahead of time and cook for 10 minutes on low. Add the salt and pepper and cook for 1 more minute. Remove from the heat and serve hot. Makes 4 cups.
