Fried Dove Breasts in Cream Gravy

This past weekend was one of those times when I felt like a “medium” for recipes.  My nephew and I decided to do some recipes with a bunch of dove breasts that I defrosted.  To my surprise, the ones in the cream gravy were outstanding.  They turn out tender and scrumptious, and the gravy makes you think of Thanksgiving.  So jot down the gravy ingredients, and add some turkey meat, if you want great gravy for turkey.  It’s easy and wonderful.
