I was inspired by Charmie777's "Good Morning Breakfast Sausage". I used it as a base and added some things to suit my tastes and came up with this. Note: Prep time includes melding time in the fridge.
- 20 ounces lean ground turkey (99% lean)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried sage
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground marjoram
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion flakes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 12 ounces fat-free evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
- 1 cup skim milk
- Mix ground turkey and spices together and let sit in fridge overnight for flavors to meld.
- Brown meat mixture in a large fry pan. Once brown, sprinkle with flour. Stir in milk and evaporated milk.
- Bring to a boil, stirring constantly and simmer till desired thickness.
- Serve with your favorite reduced fat biscuits, toast, rice or noodles.
I'm not staring this recipe because I used it as a base idea and then turned it into healthy biscuits and gravy. I made the gravy using the milks, onion flakes, garlic powder, marjoram, flour, salt and pepper. When the gravy was almost ready I added Yves Ground Round (veggie meat). I did need to add a tsp of cornstarch to get it to my desired thickness. This made a delicious brekkie that was easy and quick to make. It was wonderful to have "back home" food without all the fat and calories.
The only drawback to this recipe is that it is a "plan ahead" type meal. I had to remember to make the meat the night before! :lol: I used regular ground turkey and drained the fat. I thought 1 tsp of dried minced onions was not much, so I used 1/2 tsp onion powder and added some dried in with the browning. First time we made it my 13 yod made it unsupervised and used condensed milk! The evap. is much better! :lol: Made with kluski type noodles. The kids gobbled it down. Thanks so much!
Very nice lower-fat gravy. i seasoned and refridgerated the meat overnight as directed. The only change I did make was to the final gravy - we needed a bit more spice/seasoning for that part to suit our tastes so I added dried onions, cajun/creole seasoning, garlic and black pepper. Nice flavor and we relly liked the turkey - it is something we make as a hamburger gravy alternative. Thanks for posting a great recipe!!!
