Early Thanksgiving with my immediate family tomorrow.
I’m bringing mashed potatoes, gravy, sausage and herb stuffing, and candied bacon deviled eggs.
I had a turkey in my deep freezer from last year, so I made my first ever Turkey so I could use the pan drippings for the gravy. We plan to use this turkey to make sandwiches and share with our dogs. It turned out so delicious! I blended a bunch of dried herbs with salted butter, paprika, and pepper and then rubbed it all between the skin.
On the bottom of the roasting pan I had a head of garlic, an onion, celery, carrots, thyme, rosemary, sage, a can of chicken stock, and the neck piece of the bird. The drippings by themselves were soooo good.
I mixed some with flour to make the rue for the gravy and then poured the rest in slowly. I stored the gravy in a pickle jar.
I tried to make gluten free gravy for my niece, but I failed. Bought a back up just in case.
If you’re wondering if 30 potatoes can fit in your instant pot, the answer is yes.
