Turkey Divan

We’ll all be looking for ways to use up some leftover roast turkey (or chicken).  Why look further than classic Turkey Divan.  Creamy sauce poured over roasted turkey and steamed broccoli then baked to into amazing.  It’s a comfort food classic and when it’s time for another Eat Out of the Fridge/Pantry Week, you’ll be glad to have this recipe on hand.

Sauté onion in melted butter, once translucent dust with flour and continue cooking 1-2 minutes until flour begins to bubble.  Slowly whisk in the broth, a dollop of Dijon mustard and seasonings.  Continue stirring, allowing mixture to thicken and come to a gentle simmer, then add in cream and shredded Parmesan and Gruyere cheese.  This simple sauce brings a nice richness to the Turkey Divan.

I’m most often Cooking for Two, so my recipe is enough for two generous portions.  Simply double or triple the recipe according to the number of people you’ll be serving.
