While roasting any meat, not only turkey, all those drippings in the pan are pure flavorful. They can be used as a base for many dishes, including soups, if you separate all the fat out of them. Just in time for the holiday season, there is a recipe each one of you must try with the drippings. This Perfect gravy really is perfect, those drippings make it amazing.
If after baking turkey you feel overwhelmed and don't want to deal with another dish, just drain the pan and leave drippings for the next day. Don't waste them, you will thank me later. But if you don't have the drippings on hand and want to make your family a five minute gravy, just use any meat stock.
