For a lighter version, substitute olive oil for the butter, and replace the heavy cream with either milk or half-and-half.  If you don't want to use sherry, add 2 additional tablespoons of broth.The use of unsalted butter and low-sodium broth make this recipe perfect for those watching their salt intake. If you’re looking to cut down on fat, use only the white meat.

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onions and mushrooms until golden brown (add a little broth if mixture seems dry). Add flour, and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 3 to 5 minutes, or until thick. Stir in sherry; cook 1 minute. Add cream and 1/4 cup Parmesan; simmer 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Remove from heat.

  • Meanwhile, arrange a rack 6 inches below the heat source, and preheat the broiler to high. Pour sauce over turkey. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan and almonds. Broil for 1 minute, or until the sauce bubbles and the almonds are golden brown.
