Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Chicken broth
  • A few fresh sage leaves
  • Apple juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Nutmeg
Directions
  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When it foams, whisk in the flour until combined. Cook until the flour loses its raw flavor and turns peanut color, about 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth until the mixture is smooth. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cook until it becomes a light tan color.

  • Meanwhile, remove the turkey from roasting pan and set aside to rest. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings from roasting pan. Put the pan on the stovetop over medium heat. When pan juices are hot, add the sage leaves and fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove the neck bone. Add a big splash of apple juice and scrape up the browned bits at the bottom of the pan.

  • Strain this liquid into the thickened chicken broth mixture and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Whisk to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook for a few minutes until thick and creamy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with your turkey and sides.
