What Are Giblets?

Giblets are the edible organs of fowl, such as chicken and turkey. These organs include the gizzard, the heart, the kidneys, the neck, and the liver. For this recipe, most people use the giblets leftover from their whole turkey. You can also often purchase giblets at your local grocery store or butcher.

Giblet Gravy Ingredients

These are the ingredients you’ll need to make this homemade giblet gravy:

· Water: The giblets, veggies, and seasonings are cooked together in a quart of water to make a flavorful stock.
· Turkey: Use the gizzard, the heart, the kidneys, the neck, and/or the liver.
· Vegetables: You’ll need a yellow onion and a celery stalk.
· Seasonings: This giblet gravy is seasoned with a chicken bouillon cube, salt, and ground black pepper.
· Broth: Use two cans of chicken or turkey broth.
· Eggs: Four chopped, hard-boiled eggs add flavor and texture.
· Milk and cornstarch: A mixture of milk and cornstarch thickens the gravy to the perfect consistency.

How to Make Giblet Gravy

You’ll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here’s a brief overview of what you can expect when you make this old-fashioned giblet gravy:

1. Make stock: Simmer the water, giblets, onion, celery, bouillon, salt, and pepper in a saucepan for 40 to 50 minutes. Transfer the liver and neck to a cutting board and chop. Discard the vegetables and remaining giblets.
2. Make gravy: Return the chopped meat to the stock. Add the broth and chopped eggs, then set over medium heat. Mix milk and cornstarch in a small bowl, then slowly whisk in to thicken. Continue cooking until the gravy reaches the desired consistency.

How to Store Giblet Gravy

Store your leftover giblet gravy in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat the gravy on the stove or in the microwave.

Can You Freeze Giblet Gravy?

While you can freeze and thaw giblet gravy, thawing will change the texture a bit. That’s why it’s best to freeze the gravy in portions — this way, you’ll only have to process once. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

“We made this giblet gravy for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful,” says Linda. “Very easy to make and delicious. I didn’t have any milk, so I used half and half and it was so rich and creamy.”

“This gravy is FANTASTIC,” raves Katherine Wright. “I have made it the last two years for Thanksgiving, as well as Christmas dinner this past year. It has a wonderful flavor. Take it off the heat a little before it reaches the consistency you prefer. The gravy will thicken as it cools.”

“Outstanding,” raves Jessie Juarez. “Made this giblet gravy for my FIRST Thanksgiving dinner. I cooked the giblets in broth instead of water. I then [strained] and used the broth for the base of the gravy. The pan drippings made this gravy especially tasty.”
