Homemade Gravy Mix Recipe: 3 Tbsp beef bouillon granules, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp thyme, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 cup flour. Run all the ingredients through a blender or food processor. Pulse about 10 times until all the granules are the same consistency. Store in an airtight container.
Variations: Add in 4 oz cream cheese and 1/2 cup sour cream after the turkey is cooked, for more of a creamy, stroganoff type meal. You can also make this with lean ground beef or ground chicken instead of ground turkey.
Ideal slow cooker size: 4-6 quart
