What’s Thanksgiving dinner without mashed potatoes and a savory bone broth gravy? I used to be deathly afraid of making gravy. My previous experiences ended up in tasteless disasters. Then I faced my fears and tried again and ended up with this savory bone broth gravy. There are actually two ways you can make this recipe, one using straight bottled bone broth or using the drippings and juices from the turkey. I’ve tried both ways and either way you’ll end up with a nice savory (and stress-free) gravy! By using the turkey drippings you’ll also gain the flavors of your turkey spice rub. But, if you’re just cooking something like a turkey breast, using bottled bone broth will give you the collagen benefits of bone broth gravy.
Have you ever noticed that the drippings from your cooked turkey can turn somewhat gelatinous after sitting? This is actually the collagen from the bones and is SUPER good for you! Ever heard of collagen injections for your skin? Well, by consuming bone broth you’re consuming natural collagen which not only helps your skin but also your joints, ligaments, gut, and immune system. Bone broth has been called ‘nature’s multivitamin’ due to its immense health benefits. Here’s an article that covers the health benefits of bone broth for your reading pleasure. So, not only does this gravy taste divine, but it’s also good for your body!
