Tender Turkey with Gravy
She used this recipe posted at Food.com. I used the turkey "juice" (I'm sure there's a better word than juice, but I can't think of it right now) to make gravy.
Since my mom followed the recipe for "Moist and Tender Turkey Breast" to a "t", I've included the link. Below is the recipe I used for the gravy.
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1-1 1/2 cups of turkey "juice" from roast turkey
Salt and pepper
Pour the turkey drippings into a fat seperator and set aside. Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for a minute or two (we don't want the gravy to taste like raw flour). Once the flour and butter have cooked, pour in the turkey juice from the fat seperator and discard the fat. Season with salt and pepper. Go easy on the salt and be sure to taste.
Christmas dinner also included corn casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, stuffing, and sweet potatoes. Well, we actually didn't eat the sweet potatoes with "dinner" becuase we forgot about them in the slow cooker. Oops...
For dessert we had chocolate cake and coconut cake from Mickey Piggs BBQ.
