Turkey with no gravy is like a Thanksgiving dinner with no turkey. Because my Thanksgiving Turkey is seasoned with garlic and herb butter, the gravy is herb based too.
Since the turkey is roasted in a bag with onions, celery, and carrots, once the bird is done, there should be plenty of liquid to make this delicate herb infuse gravy. And best of all, because the of the turkey's seasonings, the liquids are flavorful enough that there should be no need to add any salt or other sazón to the gravy mixture.
