3. Then add turkey broth until it is mixed well (4 to 5 cups).

6. Cook it at about 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, or until it doesn't jiggle in the middle or a knife comes out clean after sticking in the middle.

Giblet Gravy: Stirring constantly, pour the cornstarch into the hot broth until it thickens. Also add salt and pepper to taste. If it's too thick, add hot water. It too thin, add more cornstarch paste. Cut up your giblets and neck and put in the gravy along with 2 boiled cut-up eggs.
