Easiest Ever Meatballs and Gravy over Rice
Easiest Ever Meatballs and Gravy over Rice 1 pound Italian turkey sausage, sweet or hot, casings removed 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil 2 tablespoons flour 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken or beef broth 1/4 cup milk 3 cups rice, cooked Place ground sausage in a bowl. Spray medium skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Scoop sausage with a medium disher (or cookie scoop) directly into the hot skillet. (If you don't have a disher, form rounded tablespoons of meat into balls by hand.) Cook meatballs about 5 minutes until brown on one side, then use tongs to flip. Cook an additional 5-7 minutes until cooked through. Transfer meatballs to a clean bowl. Reduce heat to medium, and add flour and oil to the skillet, whisking together until smooth. Cook 2-3 minutes until flour mixture starts to brown, then very slowly add broth, about ¼ c. at a time, whisking constantly. Stir in milk, and bring gravy to a low boil. Return meatballs to the gravy, and spoon gravy over the meat. Simmer for a few minutes before serving over cooked rice.
