Atkins Diet Turkey Giblet Gravy

Hi guys, well our thanksgiving meal set is about complete. Now that we have the turkey how about we add a little more flavoring to that? That’s right I will show you how to make Turkey Gravy.

You might want to ask why gravy? Its full of carb and it has a high possibility of interupting the Atkins Diet Plan. Let me assure you guys that this is no ordinary gravy. I won’t put anything that has a high carb count on Atkins. So now let me show you a sauce to make your turkey more flavorful and moist at the same time.


turkey neck and giblets (or pkg of chicken livers)
2 stalks celery with leaves, chopped
2 bay leaves
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tsp. Kitchen Bouquet (optional)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum

Separate liver from giblets and refrigerate in ziploc bag. Put remaining giblets and turkey neck in large saucepan and cover with 6 cups water. (If using chicken livers instead of turkey giblets, use only neck right now.) Add veggies and spices. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer covered for 2 1/2 hours.

After roasting turkey, remove fat and juice drippings to saucepan and set aside.

Add liver and cook 15 minutes more. Remove giblets/livers from liquid. Remove bay leaves, then lenderize liquid with veggies (you can use a blender or food processor if you like.) Chop giblets and add to liquid. Stir in drippings, thicken with xanthan gum and heat just before bubbling. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Add Kitchen Bouquet for color if you like.

Makes 6-8 servings. 2 net grams of carbohydrate per serving.
