Reviews for Secondhand Turkey
"We absolutely loved this dish. Made exactly to recepie."
"I made this for dinner last night and it was a hit. I used a little extra thyme and used turkey stuffing mix on top."
"It was really good. I didnt have any celery on hand, so I used carrots. I also added some chopped onion. Actually the carrots made the dish not so bland looking aswell."
"Day after Thanksgiving...I made this but because I was too lazy to go to the store and buy the mushrooms and celery, I made a roux and then add a can of drained peas because that's what I had on hand. Next time, I will add the mushrooms because I have more cooked turkey. Thank you for this recipe."
"This looks so good-I can't wait to buy the turkey! Thanks! :)"
"Substituted Stuffing for the noodles, and used lots of fresh sage, served it with cranberry sauce. Really, really good!!"
