Nothing to do with Owl, but, pictures of grey green turkey bake does not look too pretty, whilst wise old does!…………. and I was left with the vulture in the fridge, or cold room in my case as it is too big for the fridge!
This is a great comfort meal, and of course good and easy. It is a white sauce with cream and a bit of sherry, avocados, turkey and stale bread. I promise it tastes better than it sounds (or looks before it is cooked).
Ingredients ( to feed 6) left over cooked turkey 200g butter 200g flour 250ml chicken or turkey stock 250ml double cream good slug of sherry lots of salt and pepper 6 ripe avocados stones and skin removed, cut into thick slices stale bread (as much as you have or say 1/2 loaf) cut into bite size chunks 200g strong cheese, grated
Method melt the butter in a large heavy bottom pan once melted add the flour and stir for a few minutes, this cooks the flour add the stock, cream and sherry, slowly at first to make a smooth paste then sauce, if it goes lumpy don't worry no one will see Cut the turkey into bite size pieces and add to the sauce and salt and pepper Place the avocado slices in a large shallow dish Spoon the turkey mix over the top. Salt and pepper again If you have pre prepared this, cover in tinfoil until you are ready to cook it Otherwise, sprinkle over the cheese and chunks of bread place in the over 180oC for 20-30 minutes until it is brown on top and bubbling Eat with salad, or/and garlic bread
