Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Gravy?

Gravy is a thicker sauce created from the fat and liquids that come out of the meat while cooking; that is delicious and served as a dressing for the meat or vegetables.

What Are Turkey Drippings?

Simply said, drippings are the liquid that collects at the bottom of the pan as the meat cooks. Spoon or pour the liquid into a regular cup and wait for the fats to float to collect the drips. Then, use the liquid once you’ve skimmed the surface.

Can I Make Gravy Without Turkey Drippings?

Sure, if you don’t have turkey drippings, you can replace them with turkey stock, but you will need to know that the flavor won’t be as strong as the one from the turkey drippings.

Can I Make This Recipe Ahead Of Time?

Definitely, you can make this keto gravy ahead of time and store it in a container until you are ready to use it.
