Someone is bringing the turkey for our thanksgiving meal...

Grab some cheaper turkey parts, season, bake in oven with some chick broth if you want richer, onion chunks, celery, or whatever you want, then water down when you make the gravy...I do this all the time with deep-fried turkey to have the gravy

If you can buy some wings put them in a pot with carrot,celery,onions,salt/pepper, thyme, sage,tarragon and simmer for a few hours-thicken after draining.

You can always ask the person that is bringing the turkey to bring you the drippings!

I have been doing the Thanksgiving dinner for years and the gravy ALWAYS makes me nervous! Somehow it always works though. One year I cheated and used the jar gravy - not one single person noticed!

Brown the wings in the oven first......the broth will be richer and taste better.

Mushroom gravy. No turkey required and it comes out great.

I read in one of my shopping magazines Knorr's Roasted Turkey Gravy supposedly tastes the best.

I do as Grannysroost suggests every year, to make sure we'll have "enough".

Of course, even then we never end up with any leftover, so I also keep a couple glass jars of the ready made stuff on hand for leftovers for the next day.
