What I Eat

Turkey Gravy

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup organic free range chicken broth
cooked shredded rotisserie turkey breast, to taste
1 serving mashed potatoes*

Directions:
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour. Add broth. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally so the gravy isn’t lumpy. When thick, turn heat down to low. Add the amount of cooked turkey you like. Stir to coat. When heated through, serve over mashed potatoes. *For a mashed potato recipe, go to my ‘Roast, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Cooked Carrots’ recipe (the ingredients make enough to serve 4, so make 1/4 of the recipe for 1 serving) and omit the garlic powder. If you don’t add a lot of turkey to the gravy, have with 1 serving (according to the nutrition label) of milk. If you do add a lot of turkey to the gravy, have with a glass of water.
