Holidays Call for Gravy (with 4 favorite gravy recipes!)

It’s that time again—to gather, celebrate, and fill our bellies with the comforts of tradition, even if our groups may look a bit different this year. We’re asking ourselves the normal questions: what would we serve to all the guests who may be opting out of cooking and ordering instead? Those that may need a break from turkey? Or maybe those serving a smaller group than years past? The group who chooses to bypass the meat for a meatless Thanksgiving instead? Luckily, gravy transcends it all. Every single year. Regardless of where you may find yourself this season, we’ve got a gravy for you.

If you find yourself with a cup or two of the drippings from your beautifully roasted turkey, you’re already halfway to your Homestyle Turkey Gravy. Add some celery, onion, sage, rosemary, garlic, flour, our Custom Culinary® Gold Label Turkey Base, and share the goodness. If a Creamy Turkey Gravy is more your style, we have one we’d recommend. Two ingredients will yield 76 ounces of flavorful gravy or you can adjust to serve the crowd you have. You could use our Gold Label Turkey Base or sub in PanRoast® Turkey Flavored Gravy Mix, too. Even better, on something a little less traditional, this gravy option shines. Try atop a starter of Grilled Turkey Skewers or in a Shepard’s Pie. Still comforting, definitely craveable.  
Roasted Garlic Turkey Gravy is always a fan favorite and your entry into so many variations of classics. Prepare the Custom Culinary® Master’s Touch® Turkey Gravy Concentrate, swirl in Custom Culinary® Master’s Touch® Roasted Garlic Flavor Concentrate and then move toward a batch of Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits. Wrap them to go alongside a pre-selected feast of your signature items to take the burden off your customers. Perhaps a smoked turkey, a family-sized order of Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Gravy and a Smoky Gravy Scalloped Potatoes Gratin will do the trick.    

If that combination isn’t quite right, you can find 50 more ideas in our Custom Culinary® Easy Add-In Menu Guide. It’s loaded with classics, modern twists, and everything in between. We’re anxious to know what you end up serving. If you find yourself with a free moment, post your menu on Facebook or Instagram and tag us so we can take a peek. We’ll do the same. Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
