Smothered Turkey Wings and Gravy


  • 4-6 turkey wings
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt/black pepper (or your favorite seasoning) to taste


  1. Heat the cooking oil in a medium pot.
  2. Thoroughly wash and dry turkey wings.
  3. Fry the wings in the oil, over medium heat, turning, until they begin to brown on both sides.
  4. Remove the wings; add the flour to the pot and stir as it browns.
  5. When the flour is brown, add the wings, bell pepper, onion, and warm water.
  6. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add the thyme, salt/pepper (or seasoning) shortly after the pot starts to boil.
  7. Turkey wings should cook until they’re tender, 45 to 60 minutes or more. Add warm water as needed to maintain a rich gravy.
