Nothing pulls a meal together like the perfect sauce or gravy. We have said before that Casa M Spice Co® Pecking Order® was designed to make the perfect pan gravy from drippings off smoked and roasted birds. The pungent flavors from black pepper, earthiness from turmeric, background flavors of Chain Reaction® (of course), and a finish with notes of citrus round out into the perfect mellow and savory flavor to make absolutely killer gravy. This gravy recipe pairs with our roast turkey recipe (link to recipe) since it uses the drippings from that turkey, seasoned with plenty of Casa M Spice Co® Pecking Order®, as its base. In this recipe we added more Casa M Spice Co® Chain Reaction® for a brighter bolder flavor with a hint more smokiness.
We used the pan drippings from our roasted turkey for this recipe, but we know no two turkeys are the same. Add chicken stock if your turkey skimped a little bit on you. No matter what, this gravy will be absolutely fantastic!

LET’S GET COOKING
Using a mesh strainer, strain turkey drippings into a bowl.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk in flour and thyme until combined.
Add your strained pan drippings and Casa M Spice Co® Chain Reaction®.
Stir well, making sure that no lumps remain from the flour.
Cook for about 5 minutes until thickened. If it’s too thick because the turkey didn’t have enough drippings or you just prefer thinner gravy, add chicken stock a bit at a time, stirring in-between until you have your preferred consistency.
Add in your chopped parsley and stir.
Enjoy on everything!
