Keto Turkey Fricassee

Keto Turkey Fricassee with Cauliflower Mash

This weeks recipe is Keto Turkey Fricassee this is recipe #1 as part of our 2019 Keto Thanksgiving Recipe series.  We know that there is absolutely no reason to not remain strong on keto during the holidays.  All it takes is a little bit of planning and a willingness to try new things, however even many of the traditional Thanksgiving recipes can be modified and turned into Keto Low Carb friendly dishes that the entire family can enjoy.  This recipe is originally from and can also be made with chicken thighs, we modified this to make it keto safe and it was really delicious.

Fricassee is a classic and timeless French dish. Fricassee means “cut up meat”, this not the stuff of fancy restaurants, but more like the heritage of country cooks. It is rustic and simple. It doesn’t require precise measurements, but instead relies on quality ingredients, and a slow brazing technique for its savory and rich taste.

The meat is browned, then slowly sautéed with a mix of traditional vegetables in a white wine cream sauce. Use a good quality white drinking wine, I used Chardonnay, it really does increase the richness of the dish. Serving this amazing fricassee recipe with our creamy mashed cauliflower will help you to experience the fullness of French cuisine. Simple enough to be made during a weeknight, or impressive enough to share with your friends and family during the holidays.

The sauce in this dish is pure heaven you’ll want to pour it over everything.  Serving the next day only intensifies the savory flavors.

I hope this recipe becomes a new favorite for you. It’s an excellent staple for any kitchen, and you can change the vegetables and herbs based on what you have on hand.  This is a great way to jazz up that leftover turkey from Thanksgiving.

I took this for lunch for 2 days and just like a casserole, this actually got better over time as the flavors had time to meld.  I’m looking forward to having this the day after Thanksgiving.
