Just wondering how do you cook your giblets for this recipe? I'm gonna try this gravy recipe instead of how I do mine and I was wondering if you just boil the giblets first in this one too? Thanks and Merry Christmas Mrs. Deen ! For the cross, Marie Reynolds

I never made a Turkey or Giblet gravy until after my momma died and then my other four siblings looked to me to fix Thanksgiving and all I can say is that first year after our momma died is we all had to eat out!! The Turkey was not thawed out...I took it out of the freezer that lol lol and I had no idea how to make Giblet gravy and my rolls burned and the only thing that came out right was the green bean casserole and nobody gave a darn and my mashed potatoes were runny and my chicken and noodles, well the chicken was okay, but my noodles I tried to make home-made and well that is another story!! lol lol lol Now, I have come along ways....26 years momma is proud and looking down!! I watch you and follow you around smile Thank-you Paula smile

Do you have a recipe for mustard greens? My family doesn't like turnip greens, just the turnips.

i have a theory as to why boiled eggs are chopped up into the giblet gravy. i may be wrong and am doing research as to why. my theory is that at one time the gravy broke and made lumps so they thru in some chopped boiled eggs to hide the lumps smile

Paula I come from a long line of good ole southern cooks and our family recipes are strikingly simular. Grandmama & Mama taught me well but I do have to admit that when I do get stuck on anything you are my turn to girl! You simply never let me down & I don't do a trial run of your recipes anymore. I cook um up & serve um up with confidence! Thanks you so much!

To Renee...I think eggs just make it taste good and the yolk gives the gravy a richer consistancy.

I am a southern girl...from the great state of Texas. And I have been cooking most of my 46 years on this earth. I have never put a sliced boiled egg in my gravy. Why is that done? What purpose does it serve? I have also come across a friends mothers dressing that had boiled eggs in it. Please help me and my 73 year old mother to understand this practice. Thank you. Love you and your cook books, Renee

I started using this recipe last Thanksgiving and boy it was a hit! It is similar to my recipe but I didn't put the uncooked stuffing in my original recipe. It just makes the dish rich and delicious. I also added strained turkey pan drippings.Thanks Paula! You did it again. Another favorite Paula Deen recipe.

Excellent. I also added strained turkey pan drippings at the end. Really tasted like an old time gravy.
