Another favorite from The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking edited by Charlotte Turgeon. This is a good recipe use up, or stretch, that left over turkey. It's a good make-ahead dish too, as you can put it in the fridge and then cook it later that day, or the next. This last time that I made it, I was unable to get the sherry called for by the recipe. I substituted a rose, and while the taste was a little different, it worked just fine.

I had some leftover turkey to use up and tried this recipe out. The flavor was very good. I made it "as is" except added a chopped onion that I sauted along with the mushrooms. If you make ahead and refridgerate be sure to add more heating time, I pulled ours out a little early and the dish should have been hotter. I served this with peas and since I'm a food mixer it all got mixed together. It's a keeper!

This is an excellent recipe and I love it. I can also say the small amount of leftovers I had made a great lunchtime treat as all. The flavors all mingled together and tasted absolutely great. Thanks for a fabulous meal and the recipe.

I made this tonight, and I was pretty disappointed. It was SO bland. I added salt and pepper to the sauce after it was done and that helped, but it was still too bland. It was also very greasy - if I were to make it again, I would cut down on the oil and butter quite a bit and would throw in garlic with the mushrooms and I would then add more seasoning to the sauce - salt, pepper, maybe a tiny pinch of cayenne or something for a little bite.
