For Thanksgiving we made the gravy using the recipe and added a little pepper. The gravy tased wonderful, but needed thickening. I used turkey broth, 2 potatoes, and some drippings. For Christmas, we grilled our turkey, we used 3 potatoes, 1 1/2 cups turkey drippings and 2 cups of turkey broth. Added some pepper and poultry seasoning. Did not need salt. The result was wonderful. Everyone loved it. It is easy to reheat because there is no flour.
