Good gravy! These recipes will be your new favorite part of Thanksgiving.
The days of you making packaged gravy are long over. These easy gravy recipes are so amazing, you'll be making homemade gravy for the rest of your life—trust us on this one. Gravy tastes incredible no matter what you're ladling it over, whether it's a pile of mashed potatoes, a plate full of tender turkey, or a serving of stuffing. And because the dish can literally be poured on just about every other side dish on your Thanksgiving menu, you want to make sure it's absolutely delicious in every way.
Although these gravy recipes are made from scratch, the majority of them are ridiculously easy to make. In fact, a few can be prepared in as little as five minutes. (Yes, really!) Most of these ideas, including a handful of turkey gravy recipes, use drippings as the base, so make sure you don't throw them away after you cook your bird. For those who don't eat meat, don't worry—there are both vegan and vegetarian options on this list, so everybody at your dinner table can enjoy a helping (or two...or three...) of these savory, delicious gravy recipes. In fact, even carnivores will like the meatless versions—they're that good. But don't worry, traditionalists—there are tons of classic gravy options for you too!
