"Made this last night and my husband (and I) loved it. Was so simple and tasty. A great way to use leftover turkey! It tasted even better today as leftovers!"

MY REVIEW

"I doubled the recipe which was a mistake because it was difficult to cook the roux (flour, butter, veggie mix) properly. Next time I will sauté the veggies in a separate pan and make the roux ( flour and butter) by itself. That way it will be cooked and not floury/ chalky feeling in your mouth from uncooked roux. Also I will cut the flour by half and see if I like it better. Seems like quite a bit of flour! Usually butter amount equals flour amount for the roux. So perhaps 1/4 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of butter. I did make double like I said and my family enjoyed it. It's extremely thick which is what you want and pretty tasty despite all the flour."
