You can't have Thanksgiving dinner with out pouring that delicious thick savory gravy all over your mashed potatoes, stuffing, and turkey. The problem with gravy made the old fashioned way is that it is loaded with fat and calories! The average serving is close to 1 cup which packs an added 200 calories onto your plate.

Turkey Gravy 4 servings
One box of Turkey stock (most stores carry it during this time of year) 1/4 cup flour 1tbsp low-fat butter (Brummel and Brown is my favorite to use) Fresh ground black pepper
Heat up a sauce pan to medium high heat. Add your butter and let it melt completely. Next add the flour and stir until everything is well blended. Add the bouillon and as much freshly ground pepper as you like and turn your heat to high. Continuously stir until your liquid starts to boil. Keep stirring for another 30 seconds and turn the heat back to medium. Continue to stir until your gravy is thick and creamy. Pour your gravy into a container to store until "Turkey Day."
This recipe is so delicious and guilt free, your family will not even notice the difference!
