      This was lacking until I added the drippings...but also I seemed to be out of bay leaves (facepalm) so I wasn't able to add that. I didn't use wings which I might do next time so only the neck and jiblets....the wings in addition might give it a bit more of the turkey flavor I was looking for.

      Will definately make this again...with the wings, jiblets...and add the drippings... And for sure it was a time savor as everything was done already...also was able to skim the fat off the next day easily after being refrigerated over night :)

      Made this last year. Was looking for it again this year. Glad to make it again! Best gravy ever. Skipped the spices. Sauted the ingredients a long time in butter really brought out the flavor. Also great with drippings from a turkey that had been stuffed with carrots, celery, onions instead of stuffing.

      This worked out wonderfully for us this Thanksgiving at my sisters house. What a great idea, and saves so much time the day of! Thanks for sharing with us Charmie! Linda

      Ended up not making this one--but will sure keep it in my files for next time. I DO cook up the giblets with chicken broth (I can my own during the summer when we butcher our chickens), so that is half the battle right there...and then use some of the water poured off of the cooked potates. Add a pinch or two of sage and thyme...one ice cube of "chicken fat" for "color" and a cube of chicken bouillon, a dash of soy sauce for brown color. Hmm...!

      Love that I can make the gravy ahead. This saves me time during the holidays! This seems to be missing something though. Maybe once the drippings are added it will fix that. Thanks for a great base recipe for gravy! Wonderful time saver!
