  • DifficultyEasy
120g unsalted butter
2 small yellow onions, chopped
40g plain flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Defatted turkey drippings plus chicken stock to make 500ml, heated
1 tbsp cognac or brandy
1 tbsp white wine, optional
1 tbsp double cream, optional
1) In a large (25 to 30cm) saute pan, cook the butter and onions over medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Don't rush this step; it makes all the difference when the onions are well-cooked.

2) Sprinkle the flour into the pan, whisk in, then add the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock mixture and cognac, and cook uncovered for 4 to 5 minutes until thickened.

3) Add the wine and cream, if desired. Season, to taste, and serve.
