You know how you can’t eat a whole turkey?
It takes a whole cheese sauce.
But a turkey burger?
I made a whole chicken breast burger that I grilled and baked for you.
The results were amazing, but not the same.
It took me months to perfect the technique, so I’ll let you make your own version.
I used my mom’s recipe for homemade turkey gravy and it turned out incredibly well, with no issues.
It’s a good recipe for your Thanksgiving dinner, too, as it makes for a healthy and delicious side dish.
The secret: The turkey is cooked in the microwave and then served on a bun, then baked.
Ingredients: turkey breast, cooked in a microwave (optional) 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 medium onion, diced 2 cups turkey meat, diced (optional, but good) 1 cup sour cream 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese (about 1/4 cup) Directions: Place the turkey breast in a shallow dish.
Use a food processor to finely chop the turkey.
Chop the turkey meat into chunks, then remove it from the fridge.
Combine the olive oil, garlic, and onion in a large skillet.
Add the turkey and continue to sauté until browned on both sides, about 1 minute.
Add in the turkey broth, sour cream, salt, and cheese, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the turkey is done, transfer to a plate and allow to cool slightly before slicing into 16 wedges.
Serve with mashed potatoes and a drizzle of homemade ranch.
Recipe Notes: To make the gravy: In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons of the olive butter and 1 tablespoon of the butter of choice.
Stir in the cheddar, salt and pepper, then pour into a blender or food processor.
Add a little more olive oil and blend until smooth.
