Servings 6 people


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion optional
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms optional
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2.5 cup chicken stock
  • 2.5 cup leftover turkey chopped
  • salt, pepper, parsley optional, to taste


  • In a large pan, pour olive oil and heat on medium heat
  • Dice onions and mushrooms
  • Cook mushrooms about 3-4 minutes just to help them soften, stirring often
  • Add in diced onions, cooking for another 3 minutes and stirring often until translucent
  • Once cooked, remove the onions and mushrooms and set aside.
  • Add butter to pan and flour, scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan
  • Your goal here is to stir the flour and butter enough to help reduce clumps. Once you've mixed as best you can, pour in our chicken broth/stock
  • Here you want to mix well (use a whisk) and stir out all of the clumps of flour. If you leave them, you will be enjoying lumpy gravy which is kinda dry. :)
  • Drain your mushrooms and onions if any water is visible.
  • Once the gravy boils add in the mushrooms, onions and chopped turkey
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Bring back to boil and allow to cook for about 5 minutes to heat the turkey through
  • Add dried (or fresh) parsley
  • Serve over veggies, mashed potatoes or rice, and enjoy warm!
