Leftover Sliced Turkey Breast with Gravy will not taste or look like leftovers at all.
Sometimes leftover turkey breast can be a bit on the dry side, but when it is smothered in a rich, tasty smooth white gravy, it becomes comfort food deluxe. I would serve this alongside some mashed potatoes because the gravy goes well with the potatoes. You will want to cut or tear the turkey into manageable hunks rather than leaving them in whole slices. This makes it much easier to stir and serve. Why not serve my Pretzel Cookies for dessert as the final course to Leftover Sliced Turkey Breast with Gravy.

- 1/2 cup turkey drippings
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups milk
- leftover onions from the roasted turkey
- 3 cups turkey breast, torn or cut in hunks
In a large saucepan, heat drippings, flour, salt and pepper over medium heat.
Stir constantly to form a thick paste (roux).
Stir for 3-4 minutes over heat to remove the flour taste.
Slowly whisk in the milk, one-half cut at a time, until a smooth, thickened gravy consistency is achieved.
Slice the onions into one-inch pieces and add to the gravy.
Add the turkey meat.
Heat and serve.
