Homemade Gravy (Without Meat Drippings)

Homemade Gravy (Without Meat Drippings)

An easy from scratch gravy recipe made without meat drippings so you don’t have to wait for the meat to be done. You can even make gravy ahead of time, reducing stress for holiday dinners such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We are only two days away from Thanksgiving! So far I’ve given you dessert ideas, ranging from pumpkin pie cupcakes and pumpkin tiramisu to no bake pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin truffles. Now that I have you all hyped up on sugar, how about I share something savory? Once a year (not kidding), I make Homemade Gravy Without Meat Drippings for Thanksgiving. Wait, what? You mean you don’t have to wait for the bird to be done in order to make gravy? That’s right – you can now make gravy ahead of time!
