Slowly add stock and whisk to combine. Take your time an add in ¼ cup to ½ cup increments, whisking until fully combined before adding more stock.

½ cup reserved turkey giblet stock or more

½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
¼ teaspoon pepper, or to taste

Whisk immediately before serving. If too thick, thin with 2 teaspoons of water.
