Tips for cooking a holiday dinner in a jiffy!

At home everyone loves turkey but they only like white meat. Buying a full turkey breast and cook it could take around two to three hours depending on the weight. Making a peppered turkey tenderloin with gravy takes less than 45 minutes.

Preparing the Southeastern Mills Peppered Gravy Mix using a saucepan

When shopping we always add Southeastern Mills Gravy mixes to our cart. The gravy mixes are so delicious and ready in no time. Helping us preparing yummy dishes like this peppered turkey tenderloin meal with the taste of homemade gravy we all love.

Choosing easy sides that pair well with a creamy peppered gravy and the turkey tenderloin is a must. We suggest mini roasted potatoes. These potatoes are super easy to prepare and take 15-20 minutes in the oven.

A green salad brings the menu altogether. We used fresh ready to use spinach and added Roma tomatoes cut in wedges. The dressing is simple, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. All flavors complementing the peppered turkey.

Opt for a storebought dessert, baked goods, and sweet tea. Do not forget to add the Southeastern Mills Gravy mixes to your shopping cart. Then the feast is ready to enjoy!

Southeastern Mills Gravy mixes are a great addition to our holiday cooking and weekly dinners too!

When we think southern flavors and classic Thanksgiving meals that include turkey, chicken, or pork always comes to our mind the use of sauces and gravies. Not to mention breakfast with biscuits and creamy peppered gravy.

But the Southeastern Mills Gravy mixes are versatile and can become the star of other dishes like chipotle enchiladas and other non-traditional dishes such as appetizers and dips.

Besides, the gravies from this brand are flavorful, with rich consistency and the perfect addition to any meal. My recipe for the peppered turkey tenderloin is perfect for drizzling the creamy gravy.

Southeastern Mills Gravy mixes come in different flavors: peppered, country, turkey, and brown. I enjoy them all. But my favorite is the peppered option.

This gravy mix is creamy and goes nicely with the peppered turkey tenderloin and the roasted potatoes. I have used this dressing for roasted Brussels sprouts too. Not to mention to dip freshly baked bread and biscuits.
