Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss together Brussels sprouts, oil, and salt on a small rimmed baking sheet. Roast in preheated oven until golden brown and tender, about 15 minutes. Add cranberries, and toss to combine.

  • Combine carrots and 1 1/2 cups of the broth in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until carrots are soft and liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • Transfer carrot mixture to a medium bowl. Add sweet potatoes, and mash until slightly chunky.

  • Heat turkey pan drippings in a small saucepan over medium. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Whisk in remaining 2 cups broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in herbs. Cover to keep warm.

  • Divide turkey, Brussels sprout mixture, and carrot mixture among desired number of plates. Pour gravy evenly over turkey. Serve immediately.
