MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

I made this at Christmas dinner, it was bland and very light color. My own homemade gravy is better and will make that next time.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it ended up being way too thick. Next time, just don't add in all the flour mixture! Here's my full review: http://heatskitchen.blogspot.com/2013/12/turkey-gravy.html

Very easy and tasty; and I didn't add any bouillon or broth. I had an herb rub on my turkey, and sliced celery and onion underneath it.
