Go ahead and check the gravy off your Thanksgiving day to-do list with this Make-Ahead Onion & Sage Gravy! This easy gravy starts with a rich make-ahead gravy base, then wine and sage get added and cooked until the wine reduces. The result is the most amazing rich and silky gravy ever, and it’s just as perfect the next day!!
If you’re the main cook on the holidays you know first hand, how stressful it can be. That’s why I decided it was time to find some make-ahead sides to lessen the stress. I’m not one for trying new recipes on a holiday, so I experimented back in the Fall with some of Ina Garten’s make-ahead Thanksgiving recipes. As usual, Ina didn’t disappoint. She has an episode that’s entirely devoted to a make-ahead Thanksgiving meal. This Make-Ahead Onion & Sage Gravy goes hand in hand with my recent post for Moist & Juicy Make-Ahead Turkey.
There are 2 parts to this easy make-ahead gravy. Let’s start with the first part…RICH GRAVY BASE! You can make this gravy base up to 3 months in advance and freeze. What a time saver!
