Kinda-Healthy Biscuits n' Gravy

Sunday, June 10, 2012 § 1

KC is actually better in the kitchen than me, so as often as possible I sweet talk him into cooking. It pretty much only works on the weekends, and breakfast is usually his meal of choice. Lately biscuits and gravy has been his go-to breakfast, so I got him to write up his recipe for you. We've tried to put a "healthy" spin on an unhealthy but delicious breakfast.

Much of this recipe is made to taste, but here are some basic measurements to get you started:

1 lb. lean, ground turkey sausage (If all you have are links, you can remove the casing and cook the same way.)
2-4 tbsp. flour (I haven't tried with whole wheat, but 1/2 and 1/2 regular to whole wheat flour may work.)
Parsley, fennel seed (crushed), fresh cracked pepper to taste
Skim milk

First, cook the turkey sausage, but do not drain it. As you're cooking, add the parsley, fennel seed (crushed), and fresh cracked pepper (and whatever else you like). Next, add the flour. This part is based on how much fat is in the pan. Start with a little, mix it in, and add more as needed. The last step is to add the skim milk to get the gravy to the consistency that you want it. If it's too thick, add more milk. If it's too thin, keep simmering till it's right.

What's this?
