Gluten Free Turkey Gravy #SundaySupper

by jerseygirl on November 5, 2017 · 6 comments

This week Sunday Supper is showcasing gluten free holiday recipes as well as honoring TR Crumbley. TR was an active member of the Sunday Supper family and passed away this year after a battle with cancer. He was only 29 and way too young to leave this earth. TR exemplified someone who lived life with kindness and humor. He loved being part of the food blogging community and everyone knew just how much he enjoyed being at the Food and Wine conferences. He went gluten free and shared his wonderful recipes on his blog and social media. So today we are all sharing some gluten free holiday recipes and celebrating TR.

I decided to go with gluten free turkey gravy. This gravy is thickened with corn starch so there is no wheat or flour in it. I make this gravy for Thanksgiving every year. I like to make it in advance and store it in the freezer. It is one less thing I will have to make on Thanksgiving.  It is a bit more time consuming than opening up a jar of gravy but so worth it. I’ll admit that when it comes to gravy, I am a bit of a snob. I just can’t serve it out of a jar so I make sure there is always some in my freezer.

There are a few easy tricks to making this gravy perfect. First I roast some turkey wings and vegetables before I add them to stock. The roasting adds a rich flavor. I also make sure the gravy is strained well as lumps have no place in gravy.

This gravy goes great on turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. In fact, you’ll want to put this gravy on everything. Do yourself a favor and make homemade gravy for your next holiday dinner.

Almost everyone knows someone who is gluten free. So be prepared for the holidays this year and take a look at all the other fabulous recipes from the Sunday Supper tastemakers.

  4. Place the turkey wings and vegetables on a baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes or until wings are golden brown.

  6. Strain mixture and save the turkey and veggies for another time.
  7. Place ½ cup of broth back in pot and add the cornstarch. Heat on medium high heat and whisk vigorously so that the mixture comes to a paste.

I need to pick up some turkey wings and make my gravy ahead of time! What a great idea, Lisa, and an excellent recipe.

Turkey wings for stock sounds like a great idea. This gravy looks perfect!

I love that your gravy can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer!

T.R. is definitely smiling down on this recipe!

This looks wonderful Lisa! Gravy is probably the best part of Thanksgiving, without it, what would you cover your turkey, potatoes, and stuffing with!?
