Open Faced Turkey Sandwich Recipe

Open Faced Turkey Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients :
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup evaporated milk
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1 cup frozen peas
2 cups chopped cooked turkey (about 10 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 slices Texas toast or other thick-sliced bread, toasted
Chopped tomato and minced fresh parsley, optional

How To Make :
In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute onion and celery until tender, 4-6 minutes. Stir in flour until blended; cook and stir until golden brown. Gradually stir in stock and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 4-6 minutes.
Add cream cheese, peas, turkey, salt and pepper; cook and stir until blended and heated through. Serve over toast. If desired, top with tomato and parsley.

Test Kitchen tips :
One 12-ounce can of evaporated milk has a little more than 1-1/2 cups. Leftover milk can be refrigerated for up to five days.
Stir leftover evaporated milk into your morning coffee or when making mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese for a richer flavor.
Texas Toast is packaged bread that is sliced double thick, making it great for this saucy turkey topping.

Health Tip: A simple switch to reduced-fat cream cheese will cut saturated fat by about 25%. Be careful to not boil after it’s been added; just heat through.
