We always deep-fry our turkey for Thanksgiving (please don't start a pro-con argument about that!), but it leaves me with no pan drippings for the gravy base. My dad loves a flavorful gravy, but I can never get a rich enough flavor for him. I'm negotiating with my husband about making a turkey this weekend, and I would use those drippings. Other than that, does anyone have a suggestion for me? I've tried the Whole Foods gravy and it was bland and gummy, IMHO.
