Im roasting a turkey breast for Passover using this recipe - http://www.chow.com/recipes/13640
It says nothing about a gravy. Can I just add some vegetables and herbs to the bottom of the roasting pan, and scrape everything up at the end to make a gravy?
To add extra flavor, cook the giblets with celery, onion, garlic and seasonings covered in water until very tender. Add strained broth to drippings along with chopped giblets and thicken with potato starch or cornstarch. Finish with a tablespoon of butter, salt and freshly ground pepper. May have to add extra broth.
You can cook onions in the drippings or in some reserved chicken fat until golden but not burnt, and puree them through a sieve - the pulp is full of flavor and is a great addition and mild thickener for gravy
