One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner is the gravy. Gravy makes everything taste better. And no wonder, fat makes everything taste amazing, plus it’s very satiating! I especially love having leftover turkey gravy to pour on top of leftovers for days and days! Yum! Converting gravy to gluten-free is as easy as pie, (actually it’s even easier)....
