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.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup turkey drippings
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • leftover onions from the roasted turkey

  5. Slice the onions into one-inch pieces and add to the gravy.

  6. Add the turkey meat.
