Reviews forClassic Turkey Gravy
"I haven't made it yet. It sounds tasty, but I'm at a loss to why someone would even think to giving a turkey gravy recipe for only 2 cups. That would only be enough for maybe 3 or 4 people, and if you only had 4 people, you most likely wouldn't be making a turkey. I know I can double or triple the recipe; just saying."
