Reviews for Turkey in Cream Sauce
"This was absolutely fabulous!!! I used 3 turkey legs and cooked 8 hours. Almost fell of the bone. after taking meat off bone, returned to gravy after adding milk and cornstarch. Ended up in microwave 2 minutes to thicken a little more. A great way to prepare the tastebuds for Thanksgiving :)"
"This is wonderful. I use chicken breast instead of turkey. I also add mushrooms."
