Roasted Turkey Breast with Blue Cheese Mushroom Gravy Recipe

In my family, we love to prepare a turkey breast instead of a whole turkey at the holidays.

We have a small family, only 6 of us for Christmas dinner, so making a turkey breast gives us the perfect amount of turkey for everyone!

At Thanksgiving, I made a turkey and served it with Cranberry Jalapeno Relish. For Christmas, I decided to try something totally different and put my own spin on a classic gravy recipe!

While mushrooms aren’t a new addition to gravy, blue cheese certainly is!

I added the cheese to make the creamiest mushroom gravy ever and give it a totally new flavor.

While I’ve never been one to pile the gravy on top of my turkey (I’m more of a cranberry sauce girl!) this recipe has totally changed my mind about gravy forever!

It’s rich, creamy, decadent and so so delicious! I can’t wait to share it with my family this Christmas!
