Turkey with Golden Onion Gravy

Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1 cup turkey mixture and 1 cup noodles)
Don't think of Dijon mustard as just a spread; it's far more versatile. Here it rounds out the flavor of the onion gravy. Serve this dish with steamed zucchini, yellow squash, or carrots.


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound turkey tenderloin, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups thinly sliced onion
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 (10 1/2-ounce) can beef broth
  • 10 ounce uncooked medium egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add turkey. Sauté 6 minutes, or until browned. Remove turkey from skillet and set aside.

  2. Add onion to skillet; saute 8 minutes. Add mushrooms; saute 3 minutes, or until tender. Add water, mustard, and broth; stir well. Return turkey to skillet and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.

  3. Cook noodles in boiling water 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.

  4. Combine milk, flour, and pepper, stirring with a whisk. Add to turkey mixture. Simmer, stirring constantly, 2 minutes, or until thickened. Serve turkey and gravy over noodles; garnish with parsley, if desired.
