Buttermilk Biscuits with Turkey Gravy made with over-sized homemade buttermilk biscuits topped with a creamy and savory ground turkey gravy.
Now when we mention Southern breakfast options it's pretty hard to not think of biscuits and gravy!
I laugh now as I think of the show "Martin" and how he [Martin] would talk about his "momma's biscuits" and how excited he would get when he knew she was going to make a batch.
I honestly grew up eating biscuits out of the can, but once I was able to taste a really good homemade biscuit, I was sold. And while a good biscuit is a great start, but when you smother it with a rich and savory meat gravy it takes it straight to the top.
My version of a Biscuits with Turkey Gravy is made with over-sized buttermilk biscuits. Making the biscuits is simple, but is also a science at the same time.
A few ingredients like butter, flour, and buttermilk are the start of a good homemade biscuit. Using buttermilk instead of milk results in a more moist biscuit, and using butter over shortening enhances the flavor.
The gravy sauce I came up with is made using lean ground turkey, buttermilk, a few spices, and grated Parmesan cheese.
I decided not to have too much of a kick but the black pepper does help bring all of the flavors together.
