Healthy Turkey Gravy

Healthy Turkey Gravy is rich, smooth, gluten free and low sodium gravy made completely from stock or with turkey pan drippings.

Turkey Drippings (or any low sodium broth) Cornstarch or Flour Butter Seasonings

Ingredients You Need

Pour desired amount of drippings or broth into the bottom of a saucepan. If using drippings, let fat solidify on the top, skim off the top and discard.


If you are using stock/broth: For each cup of “drippings” or broth, add 1 tbsp butter and bring to a boil.

Add Butter

In a small bowl, whisk 1 tbsp cornstarch with 2 tbsp cold water for each cup of broth/drippings in a separate small bowl.


Bring your pan to a boil, then whisk in slurry (quickly stir before adding as it settles fast) and cook on medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes or until gravy has thickened.


Because everyone’s drippings  or broth will have different seasonings, taste the gravy and adjust, if necessary.


Serve warm with all your favorite holiday sides.


Refrigerate leftover gravy in an airtight glass container for up to 5 days. Reheat: simmer the mixture on low heat in pan stirring frequently. You may need to add water/broth.
