This turkey supreme is made with easy creamy sauce, and it is a delicious way to use leftover sliced turkey. Serve the sauce and turkey over noodles, rice, or toast points. Add some extra flavor and color with some pimientos or cooked peas or carrots. Or saute a few tablespoons of green onions or shallots in the butter before you add the flour. Sautéed mushrooms would be an excellent addition as well.
This creamy turkey would also be delicious served on toast as open-faced sandwiches or dice the turkey and serve it with the cream sauce over puff pastry shells. You can use chicken in the recipe as well.
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup turkey broth, or chicken broth, hot
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash freshly ground black pepper
1 cup half-and-half
12 to 16 ounces cooked turkey breast, sliced or diced
4 cups cooked white rice, or noodles
1 tp 2 tablespoons almonds, toasted and chopped
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth.
Pour hot chicken broth into the flour mixture and stir until smooth.
Add salt and pepper.
In a separate saucepan or microwave, heat the half-and-half and then add it to the thickened sauce.
Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
To toast nuts, spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 350 F oven, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes. Or toast in an ungreased skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and aromatic.
Serve the sauce hot over sliced turkey breast and rice or noodles. Sprinkle with toasted chopped almonds if desired.
