    Jane I have never done the egg thing for gravy... I usually just use drippings... Does it make a big difference. I must try it once. I usually boil the neck and stuff for stock and cut up the liver for the dressing.

    I thought you had to use bacon grease and flour. i didnt know you used the juice. guess thats why mine has never turned out. I have tried a few times . then i added milk like breakfast gravy. It was pretty nasty

    Turkey is not really that hard to cook. Empty the cavities, rinse it out thoroughly. Throw some salt in the cavity if you are not stuffing it. You can put some herbs (rosemary, thyme and sage) and some sliced oranges in the cavity also, if you like. Pat the skin dry and smear butter on the skin and pop it in the oven uncovered. If the skin gets to browning to early put a foil tent over it. This makes crispy skin. If you don't care about crispy skin you can cover it more tightly earlier in the baking.

    The pan drippings have fat in them and take the place of bacon grease.

    I dont get to cook Thanksgiving... so I got all my chores done early and put a pot of chili on. Must be the only mom around with nothing to do the night before Thanksgiving. LOL
