A delicious turkey needs an equally delicious gravy!
Michael Symon's Turkey-Sage Gravy
- 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
- 1 cup Onion (minced)
- 1 pound Turkey Sausage (casing removed)
- 1 teaspon Red Pepper Flakes
- 2 tablespoons Chopped Sage
- 1/4 cup Flour
- 3 cups Milk
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
- Heat the butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and sweat for 3 minutes.
- Turn the heat up to high and add the turkey sausage breaking it up into small pieces. While the turkey is browning, add 1 tablespoon sage, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and the red pepper flakes.
- When the turkey is browned (about 5 minutes) add the flour, which will help thicken the sauce. Cook the flour for 1 minute and then add the milk, whisking to incorporate it. Bring this mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rest of the sage, salt and pepper.
