Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood host Thanksgiving every year at their home in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s a celebration of thanks that she calls a “misfit Thanksgiving.” A lot of people that live in their area are far away from their families, so they come to their house to celebrate. Along with the “misfits,” Garth and Trisha invite family and friends over as well!
When it comes to what Garth looking forward to the most on the Thanksgiving dinner table… it’s gravy on the turkey! Here is trisha’s recipe for her famous Turkey Gravy!
2 cups pan juices from the turkey roasting pan
4 tablespoons fat skimmed from the pan juices
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup shredded white meat from your roast turkey
2 large eggs, hardboiled, peeled and chopped fine
Pour the pan juices from your turkey roasting pan into a measuring cup. Skim and reserve the fat; you’ll need 4 tablespoons total. If the remaining turkey juice comes to less than 2 cups, top off with chicken stock.
Mix the flour with the skimmed fat in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the roux is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Slowly whisk the pan juices into the roux and cook until the gravy thickens. Stir in the shredded turkey meat and chopped eggs. Add salt to taste.
