Giblet gravy is one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 

My family loves giblet gravy over cornbread dressing for the holidays.  It is easy to make and is a wonderful addition to you holiday meal whether it be Thanksgiving or Christmas. Many people love this gravy because it is such a holiday classic!  There are many variations to making gravy but this is one of our favorites.

 

Giblet Gravy

Giblets from turkey (heart, gizzard, liver and neck)

4 cups water or chicken broth

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Drippings from turkey pan (about a cup)

3/4 cup self-rising flour

Boil giblets in water or broth until cooked.   Remove and chop. I remove the skin from the neck and pull any meat off the bone. Discard neck bone. Put meat and giblets back in water or  broth and add salt and pepper, flour and drippings.  Continue cooking while stirring continuously with wire whisk until thickens.  Serve over stuffing or dressing. Makes about 5 cups. Enjoy! Some people add boiled eggs to the gravy.

    Best gravy recipe ever. I used it for the first time last Thanksgiving(2019) and it was easy and very delicious. I will be using it again and always. But do you have to use self rising flour for this recipe or is it safe to use all-purpose flour? Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!!!!5 stars

  2. My family also added extra ingredients like celery , onion, and chopped boiled eggs. My FIL , who was from southern Louisiana added smoked oysters and chopped pecans to this same dressing recipe. It was actually very delicious!5 stars

  3. I like to boil with fresh onion, celery and garlic and poultry season

  4. My parents always added boiled eggs as well.
