    Everyone loved it and it was easy. Of course I used the turkey bits from the bottom of the pan to add flavor. Skipped the bouillon and poultry seasoning.

    Forgot to comment last time. This is laughable. That tiny little dab of gravy wouldn't make it past the third person at the table...

    You really need to deglaze the roasting pan to make the most of it.

    I was looking for some help to make a rich gravy for Thanksgiving turkey dinner. This one was delicious. I love the white pepper seasoning, and the milk makes it very creamy and delicious.

    This recipe is how I learned to make perfect gravy. I was never consistent. Now it's perfect everytime. I have this recipe memorized

    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.

    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.
