Flax Gravy over ground Turkey

last night was a get creative kind of meal for me.
I had my cast iron frying pan with some of the left over bits and jucies from a steak I cooked that morning instead of cleaning it I added a bit of EVO and seasoned the Ground Turkey and fried it with some green bell pepper slices.
I just couldn't let those yummy bits go to waste in the pan so after the turkey was done I removed it and added a few tablespoons of ground flax seed to the pan and browned it in the pan and added a 3/4 cup of skim milk and simmered for a few more minutes, I really didn't know if this was going to work or not but it was smelling pretty darn good so I added a little essence and some fresh ground black pepper and poured the gravy over my turkey. It turned out a nice dark color and the flavor was very good IMO.
any other Flax gravy ideas??
please share.
I want to make a gumbo and give the flax a try, of course the first thing I did to make my gumbo in the past was start with a cup of flour and brown in oil, will the flax work the same??
guess time will tell... I may give a small batch a try this weekend.

Did the flax thicken the gravy?

Oh YES!!
I cleaned the pan out right after I was done cooking it is was setting up pretty fast could have added some more milk to thin a bit more.

Me neither, Rodney..sounds wonderful...will have to try this with hamburger and make a gravy out it..

You know I don't think you would have to cook the flax with the oil for your gumbo..(which I have never made)..I would make the gumbo and add some flax to thicken it at the end..Flax does act like glue..Well, let us know and keep experimenting, Rodney.

the one reason I might like to cook the flax first was to capture that roasted taste if it would indead brown like flower. will have to make a small batch of the gumbo and see what happens.
Glue is right!! if you made to much I would guess you could glue down the lenolium with the left overs

I'd be careful not to get the flax meal too brown. I read someone's post here recently where they said they tried toasting flax meal and it tasted nasty and bitter. I use flax meal in my Coconutty Crunch all the time and it gets toasted in the oven along with all the nuts and it's never tasted bad so maybe it makes a difference how brown you let it get.
