Turkey Giblet Gravy Tips
How can you make turkey giblet gravy gluten-free?
The most obvious gluten-bearing culprit in turkey giblet gravy is the flour—but that’s an easy problem to fix. The flour is there to thicken the gravy, and you can easily swap it out for a gluten-free option like cornstarch or arrowroot. You can also use a gluten-free flour (it’s helpful to make your own gluten-free flour mix
and have it ready in your pantry). The other place where gluten might be lurking is the chicken stock. Check to make sure your chicken stock is labeled gluten-free, or that it doesn’t contain yeast extract.
What can you serve turkey giblet gravy with?
Turkey giblet gravy is, of course, a natural fit on the Thanksgiving table, and there’s nothing like pouring this thick, savory gravy over slices of roast turkey
, homemade stuffing
or traditional mashed potatoes
. However, you don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving. You can even serve it with dinner tonight, or with buttermilk biscuits
for a filling breakfast.
How can you create a smoother consistency in this turkey giblet gravy?
This gravy has a naturally chunky consistency because of the chopped giblets and eggs. However, you want to make sure you’re using a whisk when you’re cooking it to avoid any additional lumps of flour in the liquid portion of the gravy. If you prefer all of the flavor without the lumps, you can puree this gravy as well. An immersion blender
is the quickest, most effective method, but you can transfer the gravy (in batches, if needed) to a food processor or blender.—Hazel Wheaton, Taste of Home Book Editor
