Ingredients

  • BISCUITS
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon very cold milk
  • ¼ cup very cold butter, cubed
  • GRAVY
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • 1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausage Roll - Mild
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add milk and butter, use your hands (or a pastry blender) to rub it into the flour until mixture is crumbly. Do not over mix.
  2. Turn dough out onto a clean lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Use a round biscuit cutter or the top of a water glass to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits onto a lined and lightly sprayed baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, in large non-stick skillet, saute shallot. Remove to a small bowl; set aside. In same skillet, add sausage and cook as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F. as measured by a meat thermometer. Drain off any excess fat and add the shallot back to the pan. Sprinkle with cumin, paprika, thyme and fold in the spinach, stirring gently allowing the heat to wilt the spinach. Transfer mixture to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
  4. In medium bowl, whisk flour, milk, broth, salt and pepper until smooth. Add mixture to the same pan used to cook the sausage. Cook over medium-low heat stirring continuously, 15 minutes or until mixture has thickened and flour is completely cooked off. Add the reserved turkey sausage mixture and cook until the gravy is heated through.
  5. Cut the cooled biscuits in half. Spoon turkey gravy over biscuits and serve.
