  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 30 min
  • Makes: 3 cups (750 mL)

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup + roast turkey pan drippings 60 mL +
  • up to 1 3/4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth up to 425 mL
  • 1 can Compliments Turkey Gravy 284 mL
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary 15 mL
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh thyme 15 mL
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley 60 mL
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 15 mL
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper 1 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Strain drippings into measuring cup. Skim off and discard fat. (Note: The quantity of drippings can vary greatly depending on size of turkey.) Use enough chicken broth to top up drippings to 2 cups (500 mL) liquid. Pour into a medium saucepan.

  • Step 2

    Stir in canned gravy, bay leaves, shallots, rosemary and thyme. Bring to a boil, then immediately reduce to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook about 15 min., until thickened to desired consistency. Check that gravy registers 74˚C (165˚F) on an instant-read thermometer. Remove bay leaves.

  • Step 3

    Stir in parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper just before serving.

Tip

Canned gravy is an easy way to thicken pan gravy instead of adding a flour slurry.
