    Made this for Thanksgiving. We thought it was very good; and I appreciated that it was very simple. Made a great gravy. Good for the 'less confident' turkey-maker. :)

    In response to mchelle_99 --Flour is added to an oven bag to prevent it bursting.

    Why do you place flour in an oven bag? i'm assuming that the turkey needs to go in the bag as well
