Recipe by Chef AprilAllYear

I was looking for breakfast ideas to use up leftover turkey and turkey broth, and created this from several other recipes. Taste tested by the highly critical 9 and 11 yr olds in my house ... and passed with flying colors. I like recipes that are flexible, and in this the pimientos and turkey are optional, but we really like how they taste and how they look. Chopped green peppere would be a great addition with the onions, too. We usually eat 2 eggs per person, so I made 2 per person, but if serving with other items like breakfast potatoes, figuring one per person would be great, too, if you have a large group. It makes a lot of gravy, so you can make as many as 10 eggs easily. Chicken broth and meat instead of turkey would also be yummy, I'm sure. It presents beautifully, and elegantly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *Turkey and pimientos are optional, but we liked 'em.
  2. In large frying pan with a cover, sauté onions in butter until soft and transparent on medium high heat.
  3. Add flour, mix well and brown (this happens very fast; be ready with the liquids).
  4. Pour milk and broth in pan, mixing with whisk until completely combined.
  5. Bring to a boil, whisking and scraping the bottom constantly; there should be no lumps, so mash any you may find.
  6. Toss in turkey and pimientos and bring JUST back to a boil.
  7. Slide eggs gently into bubbling broth and decrease heat to simmer.
  8. Cover pan for 10 minutes to poach eggs.
  9. Serve on open faced biscuits. Sprinkle with chives (or parsley).
