    List of Ingredients

    1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
    1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (2 onions)
    1/4 cup flour
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    Defatted turkey drippings plus chicken stock to make 2 cups, heated
    1 tablespoon Cognac or brandy
    1 tablespoon white wine, optional
    1 tablespoon heavy cream, optional


    In a large (10 to 12-inch) 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.

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