Gluten-Free Bourbon Gravy


Gluten-Free Bourbon Gravy


Apple cider adds just the right sweetness to this savory gluten-free gravy, perfect for Thanksgiving turkey and dressing. Turkey drippings provide richness and bourbon delivers gourmet flair.


4 tablespoons ( stick) butter or dairy-free alternative
cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend of choice
2 cups gluten-free turkey broth or chicken broth
2 cups turkey pan drippings
2 cups apple cider
2 tablespoons bourbon
Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add flour blend and whisk to make a roux. Saute mixture 3 to 5 minutes until roux is light brown and well combined. Set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, bring broth, pan drippings and apple cider to a gentle boil. (If you don’t have 2 cups of pan drippings, supplement drippings with additional broth to equal 2 cups.)

3. Add roux, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly. Simmer over low heat until gravy reduces to about 4 cups, about 10 minutes.*

4. Add bourbon. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and continue to simmer, about 3 minutes. Serve warm.
