That is a smoked turkey wing that I got at the Market from The Turkey Lady

I m making Roasted turkey gravy with it since I am only doing a turkey breast and I am unsure how much gravy I will be able to make from the drippings.  I have made this before and it is wonderful!

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large, smoked turkey wing or 2 small ones
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1 head garlic, split through the equator
  • 4 stems fresh sage
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 6 parsley stems
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the wing, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and herbs, and cook for 5 minutes. Place in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and place over medium heat. Remove the wing and set aside. Add the flour and let cook for about 1 minute. Add the stock and simmer until it has reduced by about 1/4, about 15 minutes. Strain the sauce and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

This was so so good!  The smokiness of the turkey wing was not that overpowering at all.  I did do some of this ahead of time (last night) and a bit different.  I roasted it in the oven per the directions and then added the broth and simmered with the turkey wing still in.  I took out the wing and then strained the liquid to remove the herbs and veggies, out the liquid in the fridge overnight.  I heated the liquid up today and made a roux that I added the liquid to thicken and added just a touch of heavy cream.  So delicious!

This was right before roasting it :)

 Good idea. How much of a smoked flavor does the gravy have?

It's actually pretty subtle
Which I like
Since the turkey breast is an herbed crust on it.
