Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner and U.S. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! No Thanksgiving meal is complete without gravy, but what do you do if you’re having a small gathering and serving a turkey breast like the Kirkland Signature Turkey Breast rather than a whole turkey? This Kevin’s Turkey Gravy is the perfect solution. You get two big servings of pre-made gravy – you just heat it and serve it! Does it taste as good as the real thing though?
Some other Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner Costco items are the Kirkland Signature Master Carve Ham, Kirkland Signature Spiral Sliced Ham, Reser’s Main St. Bistro Baked Scalloped Potatoes, Kirkland Signature Pumpkin Pie, Johnny’s Au Gratin Potatoes, Back to Nature Gourmet Stuffing Mix, Lilydale Turkey Breast Roast and the Kirkland Signature Homestyle Apple Pie.

I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I do! It tastes as good as homemade gravy to me and maybe even slightly better than some gravy I’ve had in the past. The gravy isn’t too salty which I like and the texture is nice and thick but not gluey.
The dominant flavor is turkey broth/turkey but there are also noticeable herb flavors like rosemary and thyme. I paired this with turkey but think it’d be great with roast chicken or even just to enjoy on mashed potatoes.
The 1.33-pound box comes with two large plastic pouches of gravy and costs $11.49 Canadian which I think is really reasonable for such a convenient and tasty gravy.
There’s a ton of gravy in one package, this would be perfect if you’re hosting a large Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
This is the easiest gravy I’ve ever made. All you do is cut open the pouch, pour the gravy into a saucepan and heat it on the stovetop. If you don’t have a stove or don’t want to heat it that way you can microwave it too.
The best-before date is almost two months from the date I bought it, the gravy needs to be kept refrigerated but can be frozen for up to six months. If it’s frozen it needs to be defrosted for 12 hours in the refrigerator.
Even if you’re making your own gravy you could combine this with it to stretch it a bit and have lots of gravy for those families that love it.
1/4 cup of gravy contains 45 calories, three grams of fat, two grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 210 milligrams of sodium.
A quarter cup is about how much I would put on my turkey so I love that the gravy is low in calories, fat, carbohydrates and the sodium isn’t even that high! I feel like I can enjoy my gravy guilt-free.
All of the ingredients listed are ones I expect to see in store-bought gravy. The gravy is gluten-free but isn’t dairy-free, it contains whipping cream and butter.
Nutrition: 5/10 (Not exactly healthy but the nutrition facts for a gravy are pretty good).
Must buy if you’re not making your own gravy!
I’d absolutely buy this again if I needed extra gravy at Thanksgiving or Christmas or wasn’t making my own.
