DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together the stuffing and mashed potatoes.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • With your hands, form 1-1/2 to 2 inch balls (patties will work as well).
  • Place the balls on a greased baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven until heated through and a bit crunchy on the outside (about 15-20 minutes).
  • While the stuffing balls are baking, make a roux, as follows:.
  • Sift the flour, salt, pepper and thyme together.
  • Melt the butter.
  • Add the seasoned flour, one tablespoon at a time, mixing after each. (I use a whisk to keep the consistency smooth.).
  • When the roux is smooth and bubbling, remove from heat and slowly add chicken broth, stirring and incorporating after each addition.
  • Stir in the gravy and the milk.
  • Return to heat and bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly, until thick and smooth.
  • Stir in the turkey pieces and heat through. (At this point, you can add more of any of the liquids if the sauce is too thick.)
  • Serve the turkey and gravy sauce over the crunchy stuffing balls. Any leftover vegetables can be served with the meal or a green salad would be a great compliment. And don't forget the cranberry sauce!
