A good roasted turkey dinner is one of my very favourite meals. It’s also  one of the few things that I always try to stretch into a second  leftover meal.

This one can be very simple and very fast to make, especially if you have leftover gravy from that roast turkey dinner.

The only caution I would add here is that it had better be GOOD gravy! I like to reduce mine by boiling it down considerably to concentrate the flavour before making a stroganoff sauce out of it.

The same applies if you are starting your gravy from homemade turkey stock, like I do. I reduce my turkey stock by at least half to make the gravy that is used in this recipe.

The more you reduce the gravy, the better this dish will be. If I have to eat leftovers, then at least let them be turkey leftovers!
