Makes about 8 cups

Notes: If making gravy up to 1 day ahead, cool, cover, and chill. To reheat, stir over medium-high heat until steaming; or heat in a microwave-safe container in a microwave oven at full power (100%), stirring often, until steaming. To Transport: Carry hot gravy in a thermos.

 1 cup minced onion
 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or dried thyme
 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh sage leaves or dried rubbed sage
 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
 2 quarts fat-skimmed chicken or giblet broth
 8 to 10 tablespoons cornstarch
  Fat-skimmed drippings from oven-roasted or barbecued turkey
  Salt and pepper
Step 1

In a 3- to 4-quart pan, combine onion, thyme, sage, and butter. Stir often over high heat until onion is lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 2

In a small bowl, blend about 1/2 cup broth with the cornstarch. Pour remaining broth and the turkey drippings into pan with the onion mixture. When it boils, add the cornstarch mixture, a portion at a time, until gravy is as thick as desired. Add salt and pepper to taste.
