50 Holiday Foods You Shouldn't Eat
No matter how moist you make your holiday turkey, there's a good chance guests will think it's dry without gravy. Unfortunately, the only thing this sauce contributes to the dish is fat and salt. Measuring portions out of a ladle can also be difficult. One cup of canned turkey gravy has 1,373 milligrams of sodium, almost reaching the USDA's 2,300 milligrams recommended daily limit.
Don't deprive yourself, though. Make this simple sherry gravy, and pay attention when you pour! One serving has 115 mg of sodium.
