How do you take your turkey - gravy, cranberry, give me some of both?

How do you dress your turkey on Thanksgiving? I'm always torn between gravy and cranberry sauce but it makes an excuse for a second helping.

  1. Depends who did the cooking :) If it's mine, I have some bites with gravy & some with cranberry sauce/compote. If someone else prepared the food I eat the turkey plain because there's usually gluten in the gravy and too much sugar in the cranberry.

      What do you use for gluten free gravy?
      I have just used the veggies from the pan, which actually works well.

        I don't always bother with a roux, but superfine rice flour is my starch of choice when I go that route.

          Thanks. I was thinking it would make more sense just to skip the roux.

    2. Everything: Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry together on the fork dipped in gravy.

        1. Gravy at T'giving dinner, and cranberry sauce, mayo, turkey and stuffing on sandwiches the next day.
