  • 1/4 cup homemade gravy mix*
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Green onions, optional

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

Instructions

  1. Add ground turkey to the slow cooker and break up theturkey with a spoon.
  2. Add in sliced mushrooms, gravy mix and water.  Stir with a spoon.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-5 hours or on HIGH for 2-3 hours.  Remove lid and break up the turkey with a spoon. Salt and pepper to taste if needed.
  4. Serve turkey and mushrooms over rice, noodles, potatoes or in lettuce wraps. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.

Gravy:

  1. 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.
  2. To make gravy, mix 1/4 cup of mix with 2 cups of milk or water in a saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until smooth and it thickens.

Notes

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.
