To complete our Thanksgiving meal (of course, add your own favorite vegetables too), we’ve got to make some turkey.

Now, let’s get back to homemade stuffing. This is a pretty straightforward recipe using pan drippings, flour, some wine and pepper. Just like with the stuffing recipe, you can replace the wine with premade chicken stock if you’d like.
What you need to get started:
• Pan juices
• ¼ cup flour
• 1 cup wine
• Pepper to taste
Also, keep on hand a large spoon that can withstand heat, measuring cup, whisk and serving dish.
Reduce the Pan Juices
Start by placing your roasting pan on your stove top. You can place the pan over two elements and turn them onto medium-high heat. Stir using a large spoon to remove brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
Prepare Wine and Flour Mixture
In a measuring cup stir together wine and flour.
Mix until fully blended.
Make Your Gravy
Add wine and flour mixture to your pan juices and whisk constantly until thickened.
Place in a gravy boat or measuring cup and serve. I don’t own a gravy boat, so the measuring cup works perfectly for me.
