Reviewed Turkey Gravy

Dec 2, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Simple and easy recipe that doesn't require excessive ingredients and/or extra turkey parts. Very hearty and flavorful and will be my go-to turkey gravy recipe for all my future Thanksgivings. Used about 8 springs of thyme as my herb and added chopped giblets and neck meat back in.

I read the reviews and was mindful of blandness so I adjusted seasonings accordingly and threw in garlic (i love garlic) into the pea puree. The pea puree came out sweet, naturally from the peas.
