Turkey & Stuffing Roll Ups
I’ve been trying to find new ideas for dinner and I stumbled across this blog: Mommy’s Kitchen. The very first blog post I saw, was a recipe for Turkey & Stuffing Roll Ups — it looked yummy and easy. Now that’s my kind of meal, and I knew Preston would love it. He’s a turkey and stuffing type of guy. Seriously, he got to pick a side and a meat for our wedding (I picked the rest, haha) and he picked turkey and stuffing.
And, the most awesome thing about this recipe… It’s three ingredients: sliced turkey, boxed stuffing and gravy!
So, I had a few more than just three ingredients here, and the only reason is because I forgot to buy the jarred gravy (or even the gravy in a packet), so I sucked it up and used my chicken broth (that’s what the corn starch and pepper is for). And the butter is for the boxed stuffing mix.
What you’ll need: Boxed stuffing (to make, you’ll need butter and water), Gravy (I ended up using chicken broth, corn starch, water and pepper — typically I would just buy the jarred turkey gravy, it’s yummy and cheap) and Sliced Turkey (I went the route that Mommy’s Kitchen told me not to do. She said, “don’t use the cheap pressed turkey lunchmeat, get a good brand (probably so it tastes more like thanksgiving)”)
I started with the stuffing. Follow the directions on the box. Dump packet into a microwave safe bowl.
Add butter (1/4 cup, I think mine called for)
1/2 cups of hot water. Cover and microwave for 5-6 minutes.
While the stuffing is cooking, put your chicken broth on the stove to start boiling.
In a bowl, add corn starch (I did 2 TBSPs).
Sprinkle in pepper, to taste.
Then I added 1/2 cup of water.
Stir until it’s smooth.
Pour corn starch mixture into boiling chicken broth.
Whisk it up. If it’s not thick enough for you, mix up more corn starch and water and add it in to your gravy.
And, here’s the stuffing. Nice. Everything is moving along quite smoothly.
I couldn’t remember if I was suppose to spray the dish or not. So I erred on the side of caution. Better to spray and not need it, than to not spray and need it. Or, so I’ve been told.
Now it’s time to get out your sliced turkey.
Scoop on the stuffing (if you look closely, I diced up some green beans and added them to the stuffing, I thought it was just another way to get a vegetable into the meal).
Then roll it up.
Line them in your baking dish.
Pour on the gravy.
This actually made two dishes of these (so 16 total, I covered the second dish with plastic wrap, then foil and threw it in the freezer). Next, put it in a preheated 350º oven for 20 minutes (or until gravy is nice and bubbly).
It looks exactly the same as the previous picture, but I swear, it’s right out of the oven.
Serve it up with your favorite potatoes (and veggie). Enjoy
I can’t wait to try more of these types of rollups. I’m thinking a sliced ham, filled with a cheesy broccoli rice. Or maybe a sliced chicken, filled with some creamy mashed potatoes, covered with white gravy. The possibilities are endless. Thanks Mommy’s Kitchen for the rockin’ idea.
