Author Holly Nilsson
- 4 slices bread any kind
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 ⅓ cups gravy leftover, canned, or homemade gravy
- 10 ounces turkey leftover or sliced deli turkey
In a medium saucepan or 10-inch skillet, heat the gravy to a simmer over medium-high heat.
Add the turkey slices and stir into the gravy. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the turkey is heated through, 3-5 minutes.
Toast bread, spread with butter. Top with turkey slices and extra gravy.
If the gravy is too thick, add water or chicken/turkey broth a little bit at a time to reach the desired consistency.
Canned mushrooms (drained) or fried mushrooms are a great addition to the gravy.
If desired, replace the bread with leftover mashed potatoes. Combine 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes and 2 eggs. Form into 4 patties and fry in butter or olive oil until crisp on each side.
