the turkey gravy recipe is here http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/2006/01/high-roast-turkey.html.

you can make a fast one -

1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp flour
1 can of stock

heat oil and add in the flour. Stir and cook flour until it turns brown(this is called making a roux). Add in the stock and whisk until it thickens. Season with pepper and salt(taste first as certain brand of stock can be very salty)

enjoy

This is almost a 'must' serve item in the gatherings, all my friends love it. Sometimes when I'm lazy to make gravy, I just simply grate some cheese instead and it's also yummy
