Turkey Gravy Without Drippings?

My mom always cooks his turkey on the grill outside for Thanksgiving. This is the first time we will be joining him. I want mashed potatoes and gravy, but I don't know how to make gravy without the turkey drippings.

I need a recipe for a good gravy without the turkey drippings...?

Buy a good quality canned white gravy with pork sausage and an equal amount of canned turkey mushroom gravy. Mix them together and add just a slight dash of balsamic vinegar, a little half and half and some white pepper just before serving.

Well you are just going to have to make gravy from roux.

Heat equal parts butter and flour, mix it well then let it cook and bubble for just a few minutes. Then slowly add chicken broth (or water and bullion cube) and evaporated milk alternantly. I like to let mine thicken slightly after each addition so I can better gauge the thickness and not have to worry about over thinning my gravy. Then add a little salt and white pepper and what ever seasonings you like.

I also really do prefer evaporated milk for gravy and mashed.It's thicker than regular milk, and cheaper then cream or 1/2 and 1/2.

You can also do this with beef broth/bullion, or what ever base you can find.
