Buttermilk Turkey Gravy over Mashed Potato Biscuits

 was compensated to create this holiday leftover recipe post for Faberware's #SeasonstoCelebrate. all opinions and experiences are my own. 

The holiday season kicks off this week with Thanksgiving and that will leave many of us with the need for some delicious new ways to use up our leftovers. This Buttermilk Turkey Gravy over Mashed Potato Biscuits is a great way to enjoy a breakfast or brunch with all the trimmings the following day.

I am so excited for our family meal and all week I will be prepping and preparing for the main event. But what about after the dinner?

Usually everyone goes home with a healthy dose of leftover turkey meat, some mashed potatoes and any gravy that lasts being passed around the table all night. But the dishes stripped down from their serving platters and bowls just aren't as excited as they were the day before.

So I will be grabbing my Farberware Dishwasher Safe Nonstick 15-Piece Set in red to whip up this play on biscuits and gravy for my family again after the holidays.

This set will come in handy for all your after holiday cooking because the aluminum cookware heats evenly, rubberized handles stay cool to the touch while cooking and Teflon nonstick coating makes cooking and clean up a breeze! 

To get started I made the biscuits. 

I love making biscuits because they are simple. Just keep all your ingredients cold, including the mashed potatoes and you are good. These biscuits really are best when made with leftover cold potatoes from the previous day.

The only tools I use for making my biscuits are my pastry cutter and a spatula. Less really is more here because good biscuits don't require a lot of fuss or kneading. Just bring everything together to cut them out.

Since I was already using buttermilk for my gravy, I went ahead and brushed the top of my biscuits with it as well. It gives them a nice golden brown color on top. The Farberware 9"x 13" cookie pan came in handy for baking these and my biscuits slid right off after baking.

In my 10" skillet I sweated down the onions and mushrooms for the gravy. The Teflon Nonstick coating was easy to work with and meant I wasn't scraping bits of burned onion off the bottom of my pan.

The set also came with 5 nylon utensils, including this whisk so I could whisk my gravy without worrying about scratching the bottom of the pan. 

I was able to create beautifully creamy gravy, free of pesky lumps, and not a scratch on my new pans.

To finish my dish I topped it with a poached egg. I really enjoy the richness that a perfectly poached yolk adds to a meal like this. It paired very nicely with the turkey gravy and biscuits.

The 2-Quart Saucepan was perfect for doing multiple eggs at the same time. Don't forget to add a little vinegar to your simmering water for the perfect poached egg! 

My husband is a big biscuits and gravy fan, but I really did prefer this lighter buttermilk turkey gravy. It was still big on flavor, but wasn't as heavy as the other.

I developed this recipe, my spin on traditional holiday leftovers, for Farberware and you can get the complete recipe on the Farberware Cookware site. I hope you will head over to check it out, Pin it, print it and use it with your family.
