Yield:
3 cups
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (2 onions)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Defatted turkey drippings plus chicken stock to make 2 cups, heated
  • 1 tablespoon Cognac or brandy
  • 1 tablespoon white wine, optional
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream, optional
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe

In a large (10 to 12-inch) saute pan, cook the butter and onions over medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Don't rush this step; it makes all the difference when the onions are well-cooked.

Sprinkle the flour into the pan, whisk in, then add the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock mixture and Cognac, and cook uncovered for 4 to 5 minutes until thickened. Add the wine and cream, if desired. Season, to taste, and serve.

<p>This is excellent.  I used about half the onions and omitted the cognac and white wine.   This will be my go to recipe.</p> item not reviewed by moderator and published
<span>Best gravy I have ever tasted. I HATE GRAVY, and I was AMAZED at how amazing this gravy tasted.  I thought it would taste weird considering I never had gravy with diced onions in it, none the less 1.5 cups, but wow, did the onions give it a great taste and since they were so soft, they melted in your mouth.  I didn't have turkey fat on hand so I used 1 cup chicken stock and 1 cup beef stock; the beef stock definitely was more dominate in taste. My only complaint is that it doesn't make much gravy, so next time I will double or even triple the ingredients. This will be my go to brown gravy recipe.</span> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed this exactly for Thanksgiving and will be making for Christmas. Makes perfect gravy. This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you watch the video, Ina states to add 1 tsp of pepper instead of ½ tsp so now my gravy is overpowered by onion AND pepper. It also takes more time than the recipe states. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this. Super easy to make. Onions were done under 20 minutes with minimal stirring. The rest of the recipe was a breeze. I added all the options. Will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best gravy ever and the onions were perfect due to the long cooking time. I suppose you can also strain the gravy if you like a smooth gravy like some Food Network chefs do. First time I ever got a compliment on the gravy at Thanksgiving dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published

delicious, I omitted the cognac, and it was delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! What a perfect gravy. This was the first time I tried this recipe and I am so glad I did. I was skeptical of putting the wine and the cognac in, but I followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious. All of my guests were raving about the gravy. So simple and so tasty. PERFECTION. This will be my gravy for now on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfection! Loved it. Made as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It is a great great base for a make ahead gravy that can be modified to suit the guests. I get a small amount of turkey stock by cooking the giblets as soon as they are removed to put the turkey in a two day brine (thanks, Ann Burrell's brine recipe) Then I mix shallots with the onion and add a1/4 cup of mushrooms and the neck meat from the giblets. Before adding the flour I blitz the sauted mix and then start the rue and add the homemade turkey stock. Add in the brandy and cream and the white wine and S &amp; P as needed. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was awesome! The onions totally make the gravy. I didn't use any alcohol and it was still delicious. It was my first time making gravy &amp; I know this recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic gravy! Have made this recipe just a as written every Thanksgiving for the past five years. I make it the day before and add some drippings while warming the gravy the next day. The cognac really does make a difference. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made this with chicken stock only (no drippings), and omitted the cognac and cream, and it was wonderful! I had the onions simmering for about an hour while other things cooked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Unbelievably good. Every time I make it everyone wants the recipe - even vegetarians, knowing chicken/turkey drippings (and stock) are part of the recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this almost by accident this year. Probably one of the best gravy recipes I've ever tasted. Ina, you rock. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best gravy! So easy, lots of compliments! Doubled for Thanksgiving dinner. If you have immersion blender, suggest you use it to get a little smoother texture because of large amount of chopped onions. Will try next with beef stock for beef dishes. Brother in law smoked the turkey and I wasn't expecting any drippings, but I did end up adding what he had, about 1/4 cup. FABULOUS! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow, this is a delicious and very flavorful gravy. I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone liked it. The onions really add flavor. I didn't have Cognac and used white wine instead (so two tablespoons of white wine in total). I can imagine how the Cognac would just add another depth of flavor and will try to add next time. The gravy was pretty rich and thickened that I didn't feel the cream was needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was excellent even though I modified it to be vegetarian. I substituted 2 cups of veggie broth and omitted the brandy/wine. I did add a splash of soy sauce (and reduced the salt) for a little more flavor (maybe the cognac does this but I've never tasted it so I coudn't say). I also added whole milk at the end instead of cream. Based on other reviewer's mentioning how strong the onion flavor was, I only used 1 cup. I also added about 1/4 cup chopped portobello mushrooms which gave it great flavor. But I had to cook the onions for at least 30 min. I made this a few days before Thanksgiving and froze it. Took it out the night before and reheated in a pot using about a 1/2 cup of veggie broth to thin it out. Worked perfectly and tasted even better. This is a simple and delicious recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the first year I tried this recipe. Having been in charge of the Thanksgiving feast for the past 9 years. I have always tried different recipes. This is by far the best. My mom passed away almost 2 years ago and her long time companion stated my mom would have loved the gravy. This was the best complament I could have received. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Amazing! This is now my go to recipe! The best gravy ever. The cognac is key. Nit to mention the fact that you can make it ahead. Superb! Thanks again, Ina!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will never, ever make another recipe again- this is PERFECTION! I don't like chunks of onion in my gravy so I ran it through the blender and made it the day before (I had homemade chicken broth on hand). On Thanksgiving I just reheated it and mixed in the turkey drippings prior to serving. Don't skip the cognac! It is critical to the richness. Wish I could give this 10 stars! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This gravy was the star of my Thanksgiving dinner! I did not have turkey drippings because we fried our turkey. I used butter. Absolutely delicious! I will continue making it well into the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made it exactly to the recipe and it was DELICIOUS. LOVED making it the day before and adding turkey drippings the day of. Added cognac, white wine and cream as suggested, and it was PERFECT. Thank you Ina item not reviewed by moderator and published
This gravy was perfect! I've been struggling with the gravy at Thanksgiving for past couple of years so I decided to try something different and I picked well. My father in law, the gravy expert, declared it his favorite dish of the whole meal. Thank you Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My first time making gravy so I wanted something simple and pretty foolproof. This recipe was turned my turkey drippings into a delicious gravy. I added cognac which mellowed out the saltiness of the drippings. I had to make a second batch of gravy and the second time it made it a little more sloppy, so the gravy did not emulsify well, and separated. Oh well, better make double batch the first time around next Thanksgiving. Thanks Ina for this great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just had this gravy with our Thanksgiving meal and it was absolutely delicious! I did add the cream and cognac and it was perfect. My gravy was salty but that's because I didn't realize my turkey drippings were very spicy. I was able to fix this by adding more chicken broth (no salt) Next time, however, I will add the salt AFTER adding the other ingredients and will taste to see if additional salt is needed. Thanks, Ina, you're the best!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Ina is truly amazing...I have never had a successful homemade gravy recipe until this one. The taste is out of this world and I did add the wine and heavy cream at the end for that richer taste. I couldn't stop licking the spoon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The taste is delicious, but mine came out VERY salty. Put a cut up raw potato in to absorb some of the saltiness, hope it works!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious! Thank you, Ina! I have never been successful making gravy until now. Can't wait to serve this to the family, especially my dad. He's the star cook in our family.

I just made this gravy. Oh my god it is so first-class! I didn't add any alcohol or any turkey dripping yet. I will add them tomorrow when the turkey gets roasted. I have never been the gravy maker but this year I am proud to serve this gravy. Love it. Thanks for the tip Ina on the Thanksgiving Live show the other day about cooking several days before Thanksgiving. All I have to do on the special day is roast the turkey and I am done. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this gravy for Thanksgiving on Thursday, and it is delicious! Every who sampled it, also thought it was very tasty.

This gravy is absolutely the best!!! I made it over at my sisters a few Thanksgivings ago, for both our family and her in-laws and everyone LOVED IT. I had to interrupt my dinner just to go back into the kitchen and make more. :D A total delicious HIT. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a perfect recipe, you can also saute some mushrooms in with the onions and it gives a fabulous earthy flavor, and even add a clove of garlic, sliced into three peices, and then remove those before you add in the stock - that way you get the garlic flavoring releasing in the saute, but not a huge amount in the final gravy. If you don't have cognac, just skip it, but the wine really adds an elegant flavor and cuts and compliments the salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DELICIOUS!!! Wanted to try it out before Thanksgiving. I made it with my homemade stock, and used Cognac, Wine and Cream. Going to quadruple the recipe, so hopefully I will have some left for the next day!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! Easy to make and comes out perfect every time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've used this recipe for the past three years now and cannot believe that I haven't written a review. What more can I say, other than it is the most delicious gravy ever! As others have said, cook the onions in butter low and slow. I followed this recipe as written (including the white wine and heavy cream), although I did use an immersion blender at the end so that I didn't have any pieces of onion in the gravy. I've made this for turkey, chicken and beef, using the appropriate stock, and I've never been disappointed. Thanks, Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for mashed potatoes tonight and it was spectacular! First time ever making gravy and I couldn't be more proud. I didn't have turkey drippings so I used 6 pieces of low sodium bacon (for the Brussels sprouts side and cooked the onions in the grease. It was almost exactly 1/4 cup of grease. I left the onions in there for at least 45 mins. Absolutely perfect, but if you're making it for a group I would double it. Added the cognac but not wine or cream and it was plenty thick and flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best gravy ever!! This is my second review of this and I have made it for the past two years at Thanksgiving. I follow the recipe exactly every time. Since I first found this recipe though I have used Chicken broth if we are having chicken and beef drippings/beef broth if we were having Beef Roast and it comes out delicious every time! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was one of 3 highly rated recipes of Ina's that I tried for Thanksgiving. I found this gravy a little too rich for a meal that is already heavy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never submitted a review but this was worthy of taking the time to say, I made it Thanksgiving and it was delicious. I was somewhat hesitant to add the full amount of Cognac, it just seemed too much but my daughter said, "Have faith in Ina!" So I followed the recipe to the letter and it was truly wonderful. I've never run out of gravy before! This is a definite keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this recipe so many times I could probably do it in my sleep blind folded. It is absolutely the best! Browning those onions ( I use mushrooms too sometimes in the butter is key. The longer the better. With steak or prime rib use beef broth! With poultry, chicken broth! For a big holiday, I make the night before usually. Then an hour before the turkey or prime rib is ready I reheat then add some good drippings from the roasting pan! So great and no one is ever saying, "You ran out of gravy???," item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic recipe! I have tried many gravy recipes and was never successful. Found this one and I was a success. I did slow cook the onions for about 45 minutes and then turned them off until ready to finish thr gravy. This will be my go to recipe for gravy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One more thing: I did use the white wine, but not the cream. It DEFINITELY does not need it for taste or the addition of the extra fat. I also did not add any salt since as the below poster mentioned, the broth already has it. Mine was not too salty. Great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow... this is fantastic! This is the best gravy I've ever tasted. I made it for the first time for Thanksgiving dinner. Since I had so much time, I sauteed the onions for about 1 1/2 hours which gave it crazy good taste and color. I was worried about previous reviews so I only used 1 onion. We're going to make it again this week with onions, mushrooms and beef stock for putting it on steak. I can't wait! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I felt with Ina's recipe you could not go wrong. Wow...I truely wished I would have tested it before Thanksgiving! It was way too salty of gravy for me. I was able to add more wine to it to counter the saltiness. Next time I shall test run the recipe. I would have omitted the salt altogether as chicken stock has plenty of salt and pan drippings are salty especially if the bird is brined. Live and learn I guess. After adjusting the salt I could rate it higher. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! Cooking the onions makes it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been doing this gravy for the past years, thanks to Contessa and its sooo delicious. I must say that I didn't add heavy cream neither white wine and is still really good. This year I'm gonna make it, but because my daughter doesn't like chunky things, I'm going to put it in the blender and smooth it and this time I'm adding heavy cream...Love it!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best gravy I have EVER had, let alone made. For years, I have made one of Paula's gravy recipes for Thanksgiving. I decided to try something new this year. So happy I did! This is so much better! I did not have brandy or cognac, so I substituted with very good bourbon. I also did not have the turkey drippings as I was making a few dishes ahead of time, but I do not think they are needed. This gravy is outstanding regardless. Do not skimp on the time required to sautee the onions. As Ina says, it is crucial to the flavor! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't drink wine so never have it in the house. I do bake, so have cognac. I just use TBSP +1/2 cream and TBSP and 1/2 cognac. Plus, I use homemade turkey stock as opposed to chicken stock/broth. This is SUCH wonderful gravy! My family loves it! The drippings from the turkey are so full of butter I cook the onions in them. I love that if you don't have any, you use the butter and cook for as long as stated...YUMMY! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I gave this a dry run today to practice for Thanksgiving. I have to say that this is a very nice basic gravy recipe. But for Thanksgiving dear Ina you should insist on using the rendered Turkey fat and giblets and not recommend just using butter for the onion saute. It's just not a good substitute to serve with turkey. I will plan ahead and use giblets and broth that I have prepared from turkey parts. Thank you, Ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I usually stink at making gravy....this recipe is fool proof and it is REALLY really good. I agree with another post on here about the length of time it takes to cook the onions, slow and low is the way to go, it makes all the difference in the world if the onions are cooked right. I have made it several times now, once I had no brandy, so I left it out, honestly, I didn't really notice it being omitted. You must add the heavy cream though, it makes it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
MADE THIS ON CHRISTMAS INSTEAD OF MY USUAL HOMEMADE TURKEY GRAVY. IT WAS GOOD, BUT NOT AS GOOD AS MY TURKEY GIBLET GRAVY. I EVEN ADDED THE DEBONED TURKEY NECK MEAT. THIS GRAVY IS A GOOD GRAVY BUT TASTES MORE LIKE AN ONION GRAVY BETTER SUITED FOR A DIFFERENT DISH THAN THE TURKEY I CHOSE TO USE IT WITH. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made about a gallon of this for an event, to give my veggie fried an option for gravy that didnt have meat. I changed it some but it still turned out so great, even the meat lovers like the gravy. I made 8x the amount using a gallon of veggie stock and I didnt have any alcohol so I left those out. I could just image how better it could be if i added the wine and cognac. Also, truly dont rush the caramelization of the onions, it took me longer than 15 minutes more closer to 30. But it adds half the flavor and I used the cream, it added so much richness making it creamier and slightly thicker. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this gravy is terrific. i made it in advance today for the first time for our christmas day dinner. i love it, could sit and eat it by the spoonfuls. i didn't have any turkey drippings yet, used the butter and did everything else as directed. added the cream at the end and it is so delicious. thank you ina! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I had never had homemade gravy before, so I admit I was initially apprehensive. I made the gravy--minus the turkey drippings--the night before Thanksgiving, left it in the fridge, and the day of, I added the drippings --this then turns the pale sauce into a nice brown color-- and heated it all up on the stove. It was super easy and was so delicious I felt like some master chef had made it and dropped it off in my kitchen. I'll definitely be making this again, as it makes me feel like such a gourmet cook! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Finally I have found a gravy recipe which (1 WORKS, and (2 MAKES ENOUGH!

I found this recipe and decided to use it for Thanksgiving this year (my first time hosting. I have never had so many compliments! People were bending over backwards to tell me that this was "THE BEST" gravy they have EVER had!!!!! I would have to agree! It is insnely delicious! Yum, Yum, Y-U-M!!!!! And it was pretty easy.

AWESOME! I have never made homemade gravy and it was pretty easy. I didn't use the cognac/brandy, and it tasted a little salty without it, but then I added in the white wine and that cut the saltiness perfectly. It was REALLY good. If you aren't going to use the wine/cognac/brandy, taste before you add any salt. Also- make sure your guests like onions. I'm a big fan and my friend is as well, so we loved it, but I can see people who don't like onions not liking this. Will make it every year from now on!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
