Recipe Notes


You can also thicken the gravy using cornstarch instead of flour. Skip the butter and combine equal parts cornstarch and cold water or broth. Mix well, then stir into the simmering broth a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Finally, add the giblets and proceed with the rest of the recipe.
