This gravy is fast, easy, and oh-so-good!
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
hot drippings from one, large completely cooked turkey
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
chicken or turkey stock, if needed
Strain turkey drippings through a sieve. Discard chunks. Set aside.
Heat butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Once melted, watch closely, whisking frequently, until butter turns a deep golden amber color. Be careful not to burn. Whisk in flour, onion powder, and garlic powder until smooth (approximately 1 minute.) Whisk in all of the prepared turkey drippings, stirring until thickened and smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Thin with a little stock, if needed. Remove from heat and serve.
