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. 
 

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!
